Uganda Edition: Black-headed Herons, on the grounds of Bird’s Nest Lodge on Lake Bunyonyi, Uganda, August 2022 — The nest was in the tree overhanging the veranda, and clearly the birds were not bothered by the constant observation of the guests. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Pro and Apple Photos. ISO 160 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
Common Chlorosphingus: Las Cruces Biological Research Station, San Vito, Costa Rica, December 2022 — Indeed the most common Chlorosphingus in Costa Rica and probably in Central America. One of the most common birds around feeders and often the flock leader in mixed feeding flocks in the forest. They are pretty much everywhere, at higher elevations though I think the Sooty-capped is more common at the highest elevations. Sony Rx10iv at 485 and 600mm equivalents. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. ISO 800 and 400 @ f4 @ 1/500th. Plus .7EV.
