Tinkerbird, Pendjari National Park, Portugal by Ricardo Ferreira

Picture Story

The yellow-fronted tinkerbird has a beautiful and distinctive call. I used to hear it all the time while in my tent in Pendjari National Park, but with the trees full of leaves I always failed to see it. Once the dry season moved forward and the leaves started, slowly slowly, to fell I started my quest of finding this beautiful bird… It was a new bird for me, so I was very excited. One early morning I set up my gear close to a tree full of berries and waited, until finally I was rewarded with its presence. Light conditions were good and the bird stayed a good amount of time eating the fresh berries.
