Gaudy color and a harsh, loud, squawking call make this red-crowned parrot (Amazona viridigenalis) hard to miss. Originally from Mexico, a few escaped or released birds have become a large, established pandemonium on Oahu. Intelligent, gregarious, and long-lived, they are also a threat to agriculture and a vector of avian diseases. This male was one of the first to take morning flight from a roost of several dozen along ‘Aiea Stream.

Brown Hare - Lepus europaeus

Norfolk

Double Click to view


The brown hare is known for its long, black-tipped ears and fast running - it can reach speeds of 45mph when evading predators. It prefers a mosaic of farmland and woodland habitats and can often be spotted in fields.

Thought to have been introduced into the UK in Roman Times (or even earlier), the brown hare is now considered naturalised. It is most common in grassland habitats and at woodland edges, favouring a mosaic of arable fields, grasses and hedgerows. It grazes on vegetation and the bark of young trees and bushes. Brown hares do not dig burrows, but shelter in 'forms', which are shallow depressions in the ground or grass; when disturbed, they can be seen bounding across the fields, using their powerful hind legs to propel them forwards, often in a zigzag pattern. Brown hares are at their most visible in early spring when the breeding season encourages fighting or 'boxing'. Females can produce three to four litters of two to four young (known as leverets) a year.

Widespread, but absent from northern Scotland and the Scottish islands, except Islay, I'm reliably informed.
