Thanks Dave. I was very excited when we spotted it.The best thing about the day is that you went birding and got a nice image to show for it. I have not ever seen this species.
Thank you very much Harry. We spotted it flying and was lucky that it landed close enough for some shoots.Good catch
Thank you Paul. I took several photos and 3 of them were okay.Hand held 500mm -- Very nice!
Thanks Dianne. It's quite a pretty bird and quite distinct.hey Phil! That's pretty birdie! nice shot!
Thanks James. That was not our best day in terms of quantity and fortunately we could spot this and be able to capture some other birds.Darn good for hand held Phil. I sure know what you mean about seeing a bird for the first time. I added four to my list yesterday and they were all in breeding plumage.
