Nice Birds = Good Shots

Hi,

thanks for looking and apologies for a typo. It's an Ovenbird - a naming related to the pretty complex structure of their nest made of mud. The following file gives a good idea about that ingenious bird

Wild toucans are getting rare but about 2-3 times a year some appear even in town. Normally I hear them long before I'm able to spot one. Similiar to the humming birds early spring time is the best time because many birds are attracted by blossoming trees as well as by fruits of palmtrees (like those which appear in the toucan shot). They attract thrushes, parrots, toucans, tanagers, kiskadees etc.
