Mockingbird portrait

After a long break I'm back in "business" and I will post on regular basis again.
For this week I have a Mockingbird (Mimus saturninus) portrait taken in Brazil on my last trip from June. It's a common and cute bird and can be found in semi-open areas or near to fazendas. The brazilian name is sabia do campo.
After this trip I'm an expert in the brazilian bird or animal names. The local guides (the guides of the fazendas) usually don't speak english, but they know very well the local wildlife, have an excellent eyesight and have the same field guide, an excellent one from Collins.


  1. Beautiful shot Andor. Great detail, and a pin sharp eye.

  2. Welcome back and amazing capture!

  5. Hi Andor,
    Well I was wondering when this first picture of Brazil will come... Here it is!!!
    I've seen this guy in Chile, it is a wonderful bird, and you got a nice shot of it... I'm eager to see the rest of your pictures.

  6. Nice image. Looking forward to seeing more. Blue Skies.

  7. Beautiful shot, the details are spectacular. You might want to consider a template that allows you to post larger sized images so that your readers can appreciate your images without having to do that extra click Andor

  8. @chris - just nice and slow ;). Actually I was were busy last weeks with my usual jobs, but now it's better and I'm preparing the other posts.

    @Thomas - I've noticed your template - it allows you to post larger sized images without any link to bigger sized images and the right click option is disabled, what is a great and easy to integrate feature. I'm thinking on a new website, but I don't have too much time for such a project. Probably I will try to enhance this template with such a functions. Thanks for the recommandation!
