I came across this beautiful male reed bunting this morning…..classy bird
Yesterday morning, With a friend of mine I went to my reed bed hide. It was bloody windy and sunny! I think that wind is a big enemy . Especially in a reed bed! the noise generated by the reeds is unbelievable and tend to spook everything!
We were lucky to have a few appearance of the water rail, and a few reed bunting came down…it was nice but I much prefer taking picture of wildlife without full sun!
I remember the days when I was always praying for sun. I was with my Fuji Velvia ISO 50! Now with digital I want bright overcast light!
Almost in full breeding plumage…
Classy little bird.
Look at the size of those feet!
