I'd been shooting the 3 foot tall pigeon way up in the Cuipo tree with +3 exp comp. Like a dummy I forgot
to dial back the settings, saw this bird working down lunch and fired away (yet another from the zipping dugout canoe).
Looked at the images later and was bit bummed but highlight recover in post made a semi-decent shot after all I think-

I've done a bit of Turkey hunting (bow) in the past and I know that is a hard shot to get. A Turkey can see air move!

thanks Archibald.
Just tell me what the challenge is when the guide finds the bird, puts it in the scope
and they tick off the box!
Seriously I respect the birders, at least they are out and about in the environment appreciating
the Creation....they're just for the most part incompatible with me :)

One more thing. After the trip Poof started playing more with the digiscope rig...who knows, she might
be turning birder ha!

These people you are referring to are called Twitchers, ticking frantically with every glimpse and sound.

A birder studies the birds habits and habitat and most will fight with Governments to improve habitat and conserve the birds.

Then there is the photographer who want's a great shot but most still have a great appreciation for the birds.

Then there is me, i strive for good photos but i am also a birder and also a slight bit of a twitcher. I keep a life list but i only tick a bird i photograph, that gives me the challenge. Learning the bird calls is very handy for finding birds i wish to get shots of, i don't have to track down birds i don't want but when i hear a bird that i want i know were he is and can usually get them.

This pic is not great but it is rare bird and difficult to find. As soon as i heard it i knew what it was and listened to it for a few minutes until i could tell what direction it was going then walked around to where it might come to and waited until it came to me. They are a shy bird so i was happy to get any sort of pic as i may never see one again.

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

I wish I could say I'm some stealthy turkey hunter, but if I put myself in their path before they see me, they tend to be okay with me. They're always moving though and I find that to be challenging when photographing them.
Hunting season comes around and they change their routine, making them harder to find. They know!

This is a great read, highly recommend - very entertaining read on bit twitch.
