Lesser Shortwing

posted in: birds, Miscellaneous | 0

Lesser Shortwings (Brachypteryx leucophris wrayi) are really tough birds to watch or image.

I waited quite some time and had a number of images but all were of limited quality due to lighting.

The bird can move very quietly in the undergrowth but has loud calls. The images of the first two males from the top seem to be in moult.
