  1. Gorgeous! Although, I saw a robin the other day. Does that count? I'm not sure if it means spring is coming, or that we just have incredibly stupid robins. I'm frankly guessing the latter. We miss you guys. Please wave some warmth our way.

  2. Amazing variety of Birds. Lots of them I haven't seen yet. Very nice pics. Looking forward to all your upcoming posts from Colombia. :-) :-) Do check out the recent post on my blog about my trip to the historical city Hampi in India

  3. Beautiful capture of birds (through lens) and a very patient amazing photographer you are Dave. It's quite interesting that some of the birds that you've clicked are found here too.
    The Black Vulture is something that I haven't heard of.


  4. Passaros bonitos O Dave! Obrigado por compartilhar. Voce fala portugues tambem? Meus desejos para voce ter um tempo agradavel no pais da Shakira.

  5. Hey Dave. What gorgeous photos! �� What rewards do you get spending that time in nature to capture those moments?

    1. The rewards are finding something new, and the peace and quiet.
