Birds of Sierra de Comechingones
These are the birds we saw outside our window, when waking up at the sun-filled conservatory of the comedor (see previous blog section: 2011/05/04: To Las Rabonas 88 km). The owners put seeds out on the wall of the veranda outside our room for the birds. I sat on the ground by the wall, and the birds seemed to accept my presence. All the pictures were taken within a five minute period, during sunrise. Only due to digital wizardry (in Picasa 3) have I made acceptable photographs, because they were all taken into the rising sun. Only the sunrise picture is untouched. The picture of the red breasted bird on the telescope has had only minimal wizardry applied.
I was struck by how different the “common bird-feeder” crowd was to the crowd you would see at a feeder in Canada or Northern Europe.
Any takers on identification?
