Common Fiscal

Although the Common Fiscal is a "common" bird in our area, it's one of the neatest birds around. The photos below were taken under duress. Skabenga was dragging on the leash and I focussed the camera on the bird with one hand! 

The Common Fiscal is a common resident, generally sedentary. Its habitat is almost all woodland, suburban parks and gardens. Its food is mainly insects, small vertebrates, including birds, reptiles and rodents, occasionally seeds and food scraps.

  1. I always loved seeing this bird in Afica and these are good 'one handed' shots

  2. it is a pretty bird and new to me... ha ha on the one handed photography, but they look great to me

  3. Hello Jo, great shots of the Common Fiscal. This bird always reminds me of the Shrike, we see here. Enjoy your day!

  4. Hi Jo, your common bird is so cute!
    I think we don't have this kind in Brazil...
    Have a wonderful week!
