Greater Ani

Greater Ani: Panama Canal, Gamboa, Panama, July 2022 — Another new bird for me on this trip to Panama, the Greater Ani is a mostly South American bird who’s range reaches just to the Canal in Panama. This is one big ani! And, in good light, it has an interesting blue sheen to the body and wings. In Panama its range overlaps with both Smooth-billed and Grove-billed Ani, but it seems to be more closely associated with slow moving water…shallow lakes and rivers. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. ISO 640 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
