One of my favorites: Reed bunting
A bird I really like is the Reed bunting, a wonderful song, delicate and musical, and always dressed for a party. I spent some time today listening and following a Reed bunting through .... the reeds of course. It likes to hide away in the shelter of the reeds, but today it left its shelter shortly.
Here I'm still tracking it through the reeds
And here it's shortly out of its shelter, still singing its lyrical song
....and keeping its eye on me
off it goes into shelter again. I continue to track it for a while longer and leave for the black terns that breed nearby. The bunting continues its song. I only minimally disturb it all along, shooting from a safe distance with the Sigma 500/DA 1.4x combo.
