Now that is stunning.
Terrific lighting and pose!
Isn’t that a coincidence. This bird and its mate are at the Ottawa Airport, about 150 feet from a runway. The nest is in a tangle along a fence behind a secure side fence but only about 40 feet in so it will be easy to watch the birds coming and going later on. We had them on a mowed area close by, feeding and resting in a large tree. One of them came down to the ground about 20 feet away. The male does incredible mimics. Perfect House Sparrow, Robin, Crested Flycatcher, Starling, Killdeer, Kingfisher, Red-winged Blackbird alarm call and a number of others. They are indistinguishable from those birds.
I was also excited when I got out of the car at Montreal Airport and heard the song…many Canadians don’t get to see these often
I couldn’t believe my good luck on that one.
Yes, always a treat to see even if slightly more common than others.
Great job and great pose. That type of shrub looks familiar too
I didn’t ‘need’ a shot of a Savannah but when I saw this one coming to that perch I couldn’t resist.
Fantastic Brian. What a great summer scene, amongst many other qualities in the photo.
What a striking scene.
Interesting species and photo.
Excellent photo. A first for us to see this species!
It is partially obscured but showing just enough. Oddly enough this is a species I’ve had a great deal of difficulty photographing well. In this case the bird remained on the post with me parked on the road.
Great job Brian. You can just see a bit of chestnut wing patch as well.
For me it was not just about the bird but the complete picture. The setting was great with a neutral background and much character in the post.
Great find, nicely captured.
That’s a serious look.
A great scene to witness Krish.
Showing off for the ladies is my guess but it was alone.
Fabulous to see. Congrats on a new species upload!
