There is nothing better than waking up to the sounds of the birds early in the morning. I have fun observing the birds across the farm. It takes time, but time seems to go slower when we are away from computers! And I feel free as a bird, going up and down the garden, with no schedules, no conference calls, just me and my camera! When I start to get bored, I watch the birds. The parrots pictured above come every morning!
Saffron Finch (Sicalis flaveola, canario-da-terra) standing on a lime tree. It is a common bird in Brazil that nest in cavities, like abandoned Rufous Hornero (Furnarius rufus) nests and house roofs. The male is bright yellow with an orange crown and the female is olive-brown. A lovely bird to watch.
