Hide-and-Seek Wren

The Rufous-naped Wren (eBird description) is one of the most common birds in my garden (found only in Mexico & Central America), but they haven’t been showing themselves much lately for me to photograph. This one seemed to be playing hide-and-seek from me in the shadows of my Cecropia tree. 🙂 But I do hear them singing a lot along with the Clay-colored Thrush this time of year.

You can see better, earlier photos in my Rufous-naped Wren Gallery. 🙂 Here’s 3 shots from yesterday morning’s shadows . . .

Hide-and-seek Warbler

This Yellow Warbler (eBird link) was playing hide-and-seek with me in the afternoon shadows and tree limbs/leaves. For some reason I’m getting fewer birds in this tree than I got in the past which may have to do with it being much taller than the house now and birds go to the top above my line of vision. I know that is where toucans always go, but some of these smaller song birds do stay lower. For much better photos, see my CR Yellow Warbler Gallery. And here’s 4 shadowy shots of the hide-and-seek Yellow Warbler yesterday afternoon . . .
