Considered a rare summer visitor to the Southern African west coast, these awesome looking birds becomes an absolutely spectacular sight when they're in their breeding plumage. Being one of only three species in the family it was an epic way to end a birding spree with @lindsaygailmandy
I spent a wonderful day with Bearded reedlings in Espoo, in the capital area of Finland. That was back in winter; the sky was overcast and offered a great, soft light for several hours.
Much needed time in nature this afternoon with my dear friend @icapturetheaction. Thanks JW, for motivating me to get out! Enjoyed watching this Green heron do his thing for a while. Such beautiful little birds.

Female duble-eyed fig-parrot hanging upside down. Why not?! Was eating the bark/underbark on a ginormous gum tree with her male partner.
Always happy to come across these little guys! Another from a quick morning walk on Saturday.
