Nevermore
Hi Folks,
this feature is dedicated to ravens and crows.
These birds are clever enough to recognize their own mirror imgage.
Even human kids needs some time before they could do ;)

Fancy Feathers - Part 2

Some further bird photography from my recent South African Trip. Part 1 can be found here Fancy Feathers - Part 1. I was moaning in that Journal that I was a trifle disappointed with my bird photography, in part because it is difficult to work with other people around about - distracting for the birds as well as the photographer trying to achieve and hold focus. Bird-in-flight photography in particular is difficult at the best of times, but upon perusal of my images from around St Lucia, a beautiful small town and hub for the Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park, I found this, a shot of a grey headed gull (Larus cirrocephalus). I confess to a stroke of luck here as there was a strong breeze along the sand at this point on the beach, and the gull was travelling very slowly into the wind. Nevertheless, for a hand-held shot with some post-process sharpening an

Fancy Feathers - Part 1
Bird photography is just about the most frustrating of all photographic activities. Despite good equipment, a well thought out exposure plan, and oodles of opportunity, most of my birdie shots from the recent South African trip were poor, either in focus, exposure, or hopelessly too small. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in my frustrations, but I did identify one factor, long suspected, that contributes mightily to good bird photography - being alone. As soon as other people are near, camera or no, you cannot concentrate, and the birds become more than usually nervous and difficult.
Nevertheless, here is a selection of shots mainly from the Makakatana Bay Lodge area near St Lucia in the iSimangaliso Wetlands Park, a World Heritage Site, the heart of Africa’s largest natural estuary.  http://makakatana.co.za/ I have made identifications, some tentative, and added a few notes to each shot. Any additional information or corrections are most welcome, and I shall update if app

Indian Robin (Canbaiensis)
The Indian robin (Copsychus fulicatus) is a species of bird in the family Muscicapidae. It is widespread in the Indian subcontinent, and ranges across Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The males of northern populations have a brown back whose extent gradually reduces southwards with populations in the southern peninsula having an all black back. They are commonly found in open scrub areas and often seen running along the ground or perching on low thorny shrubs and rocks. The long tail is usually held up and the chestnut undertail coverts and dark body make them easily distinguishable from pied bushchats and oriental magpie robins. The Indian robin is sexually dimorphic in plumage with the male being mainly black with a white shoulder patch or stripe whose visible extent can vary with posture. The northern populations have the upper plumage brownish while the southern populations are black above. The males have chestnut undertail coverts and these are visible as the bird usually holds the 6–8 cm long tail raised upright. The females are brownish above, have no white shoulder stripe and are greyish below with the vent a paler shade of chestnut than the males. Birds of the northern populations are larger than those from southern India or Sri Lanka. Juvenile birds are much like females but the throat is mottled.
everal populations are named based on their plumage differences. The nominate subspecies refers to the population found across southern Peninsular India. Race leucopterus is found in Sri Lanka. Race cambaiensis of western India and erythrura (=erythrurus) of eastern India (south to around Sambalpur) have the males with brown backs. The population intermedius includes forms between cambaiensis, erythrura and fulicata in central India and parts of the Deccan region. A race munda was named on the basis of a specimen from Punjab but is now considered synonymous with cambaiensis.

Barn Swallow
Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) is the most widespread species of swallow in the world. It is a distinctive passerine bird with blue upperparts, a long, deeply forked tail and curved, pointed wings. It is found in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. In Anglophone Europe it is just called the swallow; in Northern Europe it is the only common species called a "swallow".
There are six subspecies of barn swallow, which breed across the Northern Hemisphere. Four are strongly migratory, and their wintering grounds cover much of the Southern Hemisphere as far south as central Argentina, the Cape Province of South Africa, and northern Australia. Its huge range means that the barn swallow is not endangered, although there may be local population declines due to specific threats. The barn swallow is a bird of open country that normally uses man-made structures to breed and consequently has spread with human expansion. It builds a cup nest from mud pellets in barns or similar structures and feeds on insects caught in flight. This species lives in close association with humans, and its insect-eating habits mean that it is tolerated by man; this acceptance was reinforced in the past by superstitions regarding the bird and its nest. There are frequent cultural references to the barn swallow in literary and religious works due to both its living in close proximity to humans and its annual migration. The barn swallow is the national bird of Austria and Estonia.

Little-ringed Plover
The little ringed plover (Charadrius dubius) is a small plover. Adults have a grey-brown back and wings, a white belly and a white breast with one black neckband. They have a brown cap, a white forehead, a black mask around the eyes with white above and a short dark bill. The legs are flesh-coloured and the toes are all webbed. This species differs from the larger ringed plover in leg colour, the head pattern, and the presence of a clear yellow eye-ring.
Their breeding habitat is open gravel areas near freshwater, including gravel pits, islands and river edges in Europe and western Asia. They nest on the ground on stones with little or no plant growth. Both males and females take turns incubating the eggs.

Bronze-winged Jacana
The bronze-winged jacana (Metopidius indicus) is a jacana. It is the only member of the genus Metopidius. The jacanas are a group of waders in the family Charadriidae, which are identifiable by their huge feet and claws which enable them to walk on floating vegetation in the shallow lakes that are their preferred habitat. They are found worldwide within the tropical zone. For the origin and pronunciation of the name, see Jacana.The bronze-winged jacana breeds in India and southeast Asia. It is sedentary apart from seasonal dispersion. It lays four black-marked brown eggs in a floating nest. The males, as in some other wader families like the phalaropes, take responsibility for incubation.
They are mainly black, although the inner wings are very dark brown and the tail is red. There is a striking white eyestripe. The yellow bill extends up as a red coot-like frontal shield, and the legs and very long toes are grey.Young birds have brown upperparts. Their underparts are white, with a buff foreneck. The bronze-winged jacana's feeds on insects and other invertebrates picked from the floating vegetation or the water's surface. 
These are conspicuous and unmistakable birds. They are 29 cm (11 in) long, but the females are larger than the males. They are mainly black, although the inner wings are very dark brown and the tail is red. There is a striking white eyestripe. The yellow bill extends up as a red coot-like frontal shield, and the legs and very long toes are grey. This one is a sub-adult bird.
