I decided to try to sit on a spot for 3o minutes, staying quiet and without moving. I am a calm person, however it was difficult for me to stay motionless for so long. I visited a coniferous forest, sat on the ground and waited.
After a few minutes I could clearly hear a woodpecker knocking, an acorn woodpecker I suppose. However there were so many trees that it took me a while to find it on one of the trees! I took several pictures, I was using a Canon with a 500 mm lens and shooting manual. My pics are not so good, the bird was a bit far away up on the tree trunk, and was showing his back to me. I realized that it might convenient to buy an extender and learn how to shoot using properly the camera. I must keep an eye (and ear) for more spots to look for birds and remain quiet there for a while. Suggestions and comments are welcome!
Lately I had been trying to photograph the birds on a garden in Mexico City. I like the bronzed cowbird, for its red eyes and it´s mating display, the male will it inflate itself and hover above the female. This bird lives all year round here, I didn´t know it is a brood parasite.
