Ajongafac\'s Cards

  1. 1. NORTHEAST REGION - UNITED STATES BIRD NAME: Pacific-slope Flycatcher HABITAT: Mountain DIET: Pacific-slope Flycatchers eat mostly flying insects as well as some crawling insects. FACT: The Pacific-slope Flycatcher generally watches from a perch in the lower or middle canopy, and flies out to catch prey in the air. It also hovers in front of foliage or twigs and gleans prey from their surfaces. B By:Ajongafac
  2. 2. MIDATLANTIC REGION - UNITED STATES BIRD NAME: American bitter HABITAT:OCEAN,UBAN,COATS DIET: Fish and other aquatic life make up the majority of the bittern diet. Bitterns also eat insects, amphibians, crayfish, and small mammals. FACT: American Bitterns stand still at the edge of the water, sometimes walking slowly. Like most herons, they capture prey with sudden thrusts of their bills. By:Ajongafac
  3. 3. SOUTHEAST REGION - UNITED STATES BIRD NAME: CATTLE EGRET HABITAT: LAKES,RIVERS,PONDS DIET: The Cattle Egret eats mainly insects, especially grasshoppers, and in some parts of the world, parasitic flies. An adaptable species, they have been known to eat nestling birds and eggs, and to scavenge in dumps. FACT: The Cattle Egret is a small heron, usually found near grazing mammals. By:Ajongafac
  4. 4. GREAT LAKES REGION - UNITED STATES BIRD NAME: Bald eagle HABITAT: lakes, rivers, ponds DIET: Bald Eagles eat many fish, live fish that they snatch from the water and dead fish, especially spawned salmon, which they pick up from stream-sides. They also eat ducks and other water birds as well as small mammals. FACT: Many of the Bald Eagles that breed in Washington are permanent residents. However some birds from western Washington leave the state in late summer and early fall and move north to exploit food sources such as salmon, then return by January to breed. By:Ajongafac
  5. 5. MIDWEST REGION - UNITED STATES BIRD NAME: American Kestrel HABITAT: Urban DIET: The diet of the American Kestrel consists mainly of large insects such as grasshoppers, small mammals, small birds, and occasionally reptiles. FACT: American Kestrels living in northern climates typically migrate south, while kestrels at southern and mid-latitudes do not typically migrate. By:Ajongafac
  6. 6. MOUNTAIN REGION - UNITED STATES BIRD NAME: black tern HABITAT: grassland DIET: In the breeding season, insects are the primary food source, although small fish and other aquatic creatures are also eaten. During migration and in winter, small fish make up the bulk of the diet. FACT: The face is white. There is a big dark triangular patch in front of the eye, and a broadest white collar in juveniles. There are grayish-brown smudges on the ides of the white breast, a downwards extension of the plumage of the upperparts. By:Ajongafac
  7. 7. PACIFIC COAST REGION - UNITED STATES BIRD NAME: snow bunting HABITAT: Tundra DIET: Seeds are part of the Snow Bunting's diet year round, but especially in winter. During summer, they eat more insects and spiders, and the young are fed almost entirely an invertebrate diet. Birds in coastal areas may also eat tiny crustaceans. FACT: In breeding plumage, male Snow Buntings are unmistakable, with white bodies, long, black wings, and white wing-patches. By:Ajongafac
  8. 8. SOUTHWEST REGION - UNITED STATES BIRD NAME: CHUKAR HABITAT: steep, Try, rock DIET: In Washington, cheat grass and wheat seeds make up the majority of the Chukka's diet. In the winter, Chaka's feed primarily on seeds, cheat grass, and thistles, switching to insects and green leaves in the summer. Many of the major Chaka's food sources, like the bird itself, have been introduced from Eurasia. FACT: The first Chukka's were introduced in North America in 1893 and are still released regularly in Washington By:Ajongafac
  9. 9. ATLANTIC COASTAL PLAIN - MARYLAND BIRD NAME: surf scoter HABITAT: lakes and wetlands DIET: During winter, mollusks and crustaceans are the most common food items. During the breeding season, aquatic insect larvae become a predominant part of the diet. Surf Scoters also eat other aquatic invertebrates and pondweeds. FACT: Continent-wide, Surf Scoters may have gone through a serious decline early in the 20th Century, but now appear to be numerous with a stable population. By:Ajongafac
  10. 10. PIEDMONT PLATEAU - MARYLAND BIRD NAME: Mourning Dove HABITAT: Forests DIET: Seeds make up 99% of their diet. Mourning Doves swallow grit to help digest hard seeds and grain. FACT: The Mourning Dove is common and widespread at low elevations throughout eastern Washington, and fairly common but local in western Washington By:Ajongafac
  11. 11. APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN REGION - MARYLAND BIRD NAME: American crow HABITAT: Greenland DIET: Omnivores, American Crows eat just about anything, including garbage, carrion, seeds, the eggs and young of other birds, marshmallows, and invertebrates. FACT: American Crows can be found year round in the proper habitat throughout Washington, except in alpine snowfields and in coastal areas occupied by Northwestern Crows if, in fact, the two are separate species (see Northwestern Crow.)
