    This is an amazing click! Mesmerizing photo...particularly great example of what happens when you are patient and explorative with breaking the rules :)

    Lovely photo! Loved the finch. Just a small note: would have been better if the limbs had not been cut :)

    I really like this photo. It shows the colour features of the bird. It would have been better if there was no obstructing object. However, on the other hand, I think it also shows how well the bird tries to ambush itself.

    Well, I have been spending a lot of time in my Virology Lab and had less time for photography. However, I followed the tips and essential field techniques. I also tried to begin from my home where I tried to photograph only sparrows. Another location was a pond a bit close to my home where I photographed ducks. Suggestions and comments are welcome! Thanks, SiddBird1UK_unsigned_JPEGDuck_greyscale_unsigned_JPEGSparrow_unsigned_JPEG

    This was my first successful sighting and close observation of a bird! Common name: Common Wagtail Scientific name: Motacilla alba Bird1_1 I recently began observing birds in my surroundings. This was one of the commonly encountered species in the garden and surroundings with ample fresh water. Observation: This species appeared almost daily and at different times of the day. One interesting observation was (correct me if I am wrong), that it tried to keep its radius of food capture constant. When I tried to go near it (15 feet away), it flew away to the next perch, whoch was about 30 feet away. However, as I kept still and sat there for a while, it returned to its radius of food search. Also, it seemed to be a pretty confident bird. I also saw a second one, which it tried to follow. I do not clearly understand if it was an opposite gender, since the information about the bird says that it breeds throughout the year, but especially from July till December. I think the research I did at the beginning helped me to know which species are commonly found and I can hope to see most of the times during the day. This also means that I had more chances of spotting it. I look forward to learning and applying it in the field. Thanks, Siddhesh
