Very nice, Mike! It seems males are harder to come by. I have shot females quite a few times, never had a male.

Plain-capped Ground-tyrant. I don't know who comes up with these names. This bird lives at 13,000 feet in the Andes.

Thank you very much Shalu.

I've caught them when they are fishing in large numbers. That's when I've found most of the males.


Common Mergansers fishing.

This shot is an outstanding, hard to get, classic shot, Shalu. In my opinion, it's world-class.bw!

Incredibly nice shot, Richard. It is both very sharp and vivid. Very fine work.

Nor do I, but the name makes sense because ground tyrants prey on insects on the ground (external link).
