What started off pretty well yesterday, turned more challenging today, as I sought to explore birds which were smaller, faster and well hidden in their habitat. It was a little frustrating as this morning I was totally prepared, but over an hour seemed less time and even now I hear birds seeming to silently mock me as they chose to play hide and seek with me. Here are some pictures of birds in their surroundings. They were at first difficult to distinguish from the rest of the tree, but as my eye got trained, I did manage a couple of pictures of the elusive creatures. In the process, some larger and more splendid birds got missed. But here is to document for my own self…the birds that I hear everyday.
