Rufous-bellied Thrush (Turdus rufiventris), Pantanal, Brazil 2008


  1. This is such a difficult bird to photograph in India. You have done very well in getting it in the open. Beautiful

  2. This bird was not a shy one, but I took only a short series with this species due to lack of time. You should visit Brasil ...
