The Yellow-tufted Woodpecker is a small woodpecker that likes to move constantly. The best way to succeed is to just stay at one spot and wait until they are in clear view. Sometimes I see them as a couple or in a small group on one tree.
I heard these Mealy Amazons first before I spotted them. I was ready to shoot them when at the last moment they decided to change their course. Here you definitely can clearly see the different colors on them and the red patch on their wings. One of them even had a little snack for along the way.
The Golden-winged Parakeets are so tiny that when they fly over you see dark figures passing by. It is only their calls that let you know that those tiny birds are Golden-winged Parakeets. When they are resting, it is usually high up in the trees so binoculars are a must.
So imagine my excitement when this pair decided to rest on a lower part of a branch. Fully exposed and in no need to leave the area.
Finally got my shot.
The Ringed Woodpecker usually gives me a hard time to succeed in my mission; trying to get a decent shot from them. They have a hidden talent to be at places where the light isn't in your favor. But finally luck was by my side. I saw a couple climbing their way up this tree. They even stayed at the same tree when I tried to take a photo of them. This male even rewarded me for my perseverance and patience. Love this guy.
