[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Abyssinian ground-thrush (Geokichla piaggiae) is a passerine bird native to north-east Africa. It lives at high altitude in montane forests.

According to many authorities this one and many of this series are some of the best photos belongs to this species :)

We met with this species at many locations but the one we met in the campus of Wondo Genet College of Forestry was quiet tame and stay quiet long at the same location near a stream.

Wondo Genet is a resort town in Ethiopia. A dream country for birding for sure!

Hello Emin,
Yes, Ethiopia really is a dream country for birding. I was there six years ago.
This bird I've missed. The light on this ground-thrush is splendid. The match of colours in this photo is amazing. Superb sharpness, details and a very attractive pose taken from an excellent low POV. A beauty!

Bonsoir Emin,
L'éclairage me paraît insuffisant mais le sujet est tout de même bien valorisé.
