Many birds dress up in their best during the breeding season to attract a mate. One is the Pheasant-tailed Jacana.



Non breeding plumage.



All dressed up for the breeding season.

Olive-backed Sunbird, which was just across the road from our house was a nice find. A bit of a challenge to snap as well and I've decided I need at least twice the 450mm zoom I have to take decent pictures of birds.

Good one Troy.
A 1.4 extender should be enough or you could go to a 2.0, much cheaper than buying new lenses.

^^ Yes, I was thinking of an extender, but still expensive. I will have to go hunting around for second hand equipment.

Some birds for you to identify...





Two pictures of the same bird, which I think is one of the leaf warblers. The second picture was taken while the bird was in a brief hover with wings flapping like crazy (shutter speed was 1/1000 s). Any idea which leaf warbler?


Another picture that really needed a better zoom but I think this is a Common Iora.



..and one that is common in our garden but I can't think what it is

My first thought was that perhaps it is a Plain Prinia. My second thought is perhaps a Bright-Capped Cisticola.

The first I will have to look up but as I have just moved to a new house and have no internet and am at the local library without my books it will have to wait. It s possibly one of the Warblers as is second, cant tell which from that photo.

The third is a Common Lora and the forth an Eastern or Siberian Stonechat

Have a look at this site Oriental Bird Club Image Database : Welcome you do have to know where to start but I use it quite a lot.

From me today Black Baza.

I just use bridge cameras a Canon SX60HS and a Canon SX50HS for 2 reasons, weight and cost.
I mostly walk around in forests and the less weight I have to carry the better.

I am also rough on gear and these cost a tenth or less than a good DSLR and long lens so if I break one I dont break the bank replacing it.
