Beautiful capture and looooooooooooooow profile!!

Thanks, MM. I was laying down waiting for him to come out of the tall grass he hid in.


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

Thanks. My wife and I were en route to New Zealand, but we stopped off for two days in Singapore to meet up with a friend who took us to a few easily accessible birding spots. It was a bit rushed, due to trying to cram in as much as possible in the little time available, but tremendous fun. The Singapore bird list is quite extensive and there must be great opportunities there for anyone with the time to explore fully. Also many of the birds are very tolerant. For example, this Yellow Bittern was right next to some open-air tables where we were having breakfast. In Britain you wouldn't get within yards of any heron without a hide/blind.

Excellent shot and, I think, one of the nicest I've seen for colour and detail of this bird. Great stuff!

European Bee Eater

I wish they wouldn't perch on the power lines, but they were migrating and all lined up waiting to move on.

The Grey Jay is very happy to... They have skills to deal with cold weather. They lay their eggs in the snow every year, they do not migrate to the south for the warmth much like myself lol. They kinda fit with another post here about stashing food and remembering just where. You see they cover food with there own saliva to preserve it and hid it through the fall so they have food for the winter and to raise their young. So they have very good memory's.

Their young are about this size right now. I know this because there is a research group that what I call interferes with a group of Grey Jays in the name of research. I'm not a fan as you can tell.
