A moment you want to pause, savor and remember.

“This Moment” is a ritual I found on Life inspired by the Wee Man adopted from SouleMama.

WOW! Sensational shot - a pic like that has been known to move a grown twitcher to tears!!

What bird is that?

Jim said...

Nice to see you here again Red.
And hi to Jean.
I'm not sure of the name, got to research it, but I have been going through some shots of birds I took in Ethiopia, and this stands out. This brilliant bird was cleaning up the crumbs off tables at the open sided restaurant we stopped at for lunch near Lake Tana. The birds in Ethiopia are very colorful, brilliant oranges, reds or golds.
A birders paradise country. Couldn't believe the variety they have there.

Loved the vibrant colours of this bird. He seems to be pensive.

I need to know the name of this one.

That's a gorgeous photo Jim. I've said this to you before, I think, but I really wish the birdlife in Fethiye was more interesting. I've been photographing seagulls this week! :)

Lily Trotter said...

Nice one Jim,
Now tell the fans that it is a Black-headed (sometimes called Village or Spotted-backed) Weaver. Ploceus cucullatus.

Jim said...

Hey thanks Lily, great and thanks for helping us out with that one.
I'll check out your blog. Looks like you're a birder?

Jim said...

And looks like we'll be travelling together soon :-)!!

Lily Trotter said...

Well your run of luck had to run out one day.
