A Penguin Encounter at the Santa Barbara Zoo – Humboldt Penguin (Spheniscus humboldti) [Video] (3:23)

A penguin encounter with Cito, a Humboldt Penguin (Spheniscus humboldti) at the Santa Barbara Zoo. I was attending the Island Fox Conservation Working Group Conference at the zoo and these keepers gave us a special treat by bringing Cito out for some interaction and an informative talk. It was great to be so “up-close and personal” with such an amazing animal.

Female Black-Headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus) - 2 in a series

 

A female Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus) made an appearance over a few days here in the garden. I am guessing she was migrating north for the summer as grosbeaks are not a regular visitor.

Leo Carillo State Beach – A Minute in Los Angeles 9 from My Word

Leo Carillo State Beach - A Minute in Los Angeles 9 from My Word [Video]

A timelapse minute (about 60 mins of real time) shot at Leo Carillo State Park and Beach near Malibu. The temperature was perfect, but as you can see, the wind was blowing the sand around a bit. We ended up at Ventura Harbor for some sunset video and photos which will be coming soon.

Hummingbirds at the feeder in 4k – 5 in a series [Video] (1:13)

Hummingbirds at the feeder in 4k – 5 in a series

We have had regular visitors at our window-mounted feeder so I took the time to capture a few.

This video is available in 4k. I recently upgraded my camera and am trying it out on a variety of subjects.

Hummingbirds at the feeder in 4k - 5 in a series [Video] (1:13)

Hummingbirds are birds from the Americas that constitute the family Trochilidae. They are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring 7.5–13 cm (3–5 in) in length. Indeed, the smallest extant bird species is a hummingbird, the 5 cm (2.0 in) bee hummingbird weighing less than 2.0 g (0.07 oz).

They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings which flap at high frequencies audible to humans. They hover in mid-air at rapid wing-flapping rates, which vary from around 12 beats per second in the largest species, to in excess of 80 in some of the smallest. Of those species that have been measured in wind tunnels, their top speed exceeds 15 m/s (54 km/h; 34 mph) and some species can dive at speeds in excess of 22 m/s (79 km/h; 49 mph).[1][2]

Hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of any homeothermic animal.[3] To conserve energy when food is scarce, and nightly when not foraging, they can go into torpor, a state similar to hibernation, slowing metabolic rate to 1/15th of its normal rate.[4] — Wikipedia
