I have presented several images of different birds from our property. These birds can be seen daily year round, or for many months during their breeding seasons. These shots were taken using stealth and observation. Originally I used no hides for the shots, however many instances occurred when the bird was a long way from the hide, so getting the birds used to my walking about camera in hand commenced. The birds have become so accustomed to our presence here that they will come up to within a couple of meters of myself and camera.
This year we have had several new species arrive here and they have become fixtures in our species list. We have had over 16 species nesting here and right now we have Hummingbirds on eggs, three species of doves on eggs & with young, Bananaquits with young and Sayaca Tanagers building a nest right up by the house.
I have often set up feeding sessions for the three species of vulture that frequent the area. This makes for exciting photography
This is simply a bird photographers paradise.
