African Hill-Babbler: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Uganda, August 2022 — This is a common bird through-out its range in East Africa, but the birds along the Albertine Rift have the full black head and are a unique sub-speices, sometimes called the Rwenzori Hill-babbler. Yet another bird from our few hours abound the parking area at the Gorilla Trek trailhead. Sony Rx10iv at 591mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications.

Goldfinch, Eastern Bluebird, White-breasted Nuthatch: Kennebunk, Maine, USA, January 2023 — We had a flurry of birds (our mixed feeding flock) just as the first huge flakes of snow begin to fall yesterday, so I paused my exercise routine to take the camera out and record it. Three of the usual suspects making the most of the opportunity. The Bluebird looks the most bemused by the falling snow (our first this year) but then bluebirds always look a bit bemused.
