Meanwhile I'm posting photos of birds that I didn't do too badly in capturing their image while I'm still learning!
Striped Kingfisher - I love the curved shadow of it's straight beak!
And the sun reflected it its eye in this shot
This small black and white stork has bare skin around its face which is greenish and a red spot in front of the eyes. The bill is greenish/grey with a red tip. The legs are dull greenish with red joints and feet. Although I'd seen many of these storks flying over the Nile while we lived in Khartoum, I've never had the opportunity to photograph them.
I'm linking my post to Wild Bird Wednesday hosted by Stewart Monckton and which you can visit here
Note: the date stamp in all these photos had me completely stumped. Somehow I'd activated it and although I tried every thing to remove it, I just couldn't. Then I saw the little icon on the camera screen : a spanner and a hammer. (All my previous cameras had this icon and I knew how to use it) I clicked on it; it came up as camera settings and I scrolled down until it said: "Reset All" I clicked on this and the date was deleted. Yay!
