Hello to all, friends of TN!
Many yet saw the presentation of Johnny, the ovenbird, scratching itself, where it seemed to be singing; but the certain thing is that after primping it decided to lie down! and to take a rest under the sun,avoiding the cold wind.
An image that I believe it´s not frequent to see in the behavior of the birds, to lie down on a side.
It will continue...
Photo taken to about 7 meters, with Tair lens 300mm, scanned, processed with Adobe photoshop and cropped.

Hi Hernan
Ok, so maybe Johnny wasn't a rock 'n' roll star, but an opera singer and now he is squeezing the last ounce of pathos from the death scene in 'Romeo and Juliet'.
Very interesting and as yet never seen before behaviour from this birdie. Very well seen and excellently captured.
If you use a little bit of imagination you can see a bird in flight etched into the concrete in the top right hand corner of your photo.
Well done my friend and TFS.

Is he lying on his back? I see that you are having a good relationship with this Johnny. It is good. TFS

Vous ętes un excellent observateur, Herman.
Cette photo représentant un oiseau au repos peut sans doute ętre une banalité, mais dans une telle pose, c'est extraordinaire. Bravo.

Hola Hernan
De veras que es increible ver un pájaro tumbado boca arriba.
La foto resulta impactante por el color del fondo tan a juego con el pájaro y la cornisa inclinada. ˇTodo queda muy bien!
Un saludo cordial,
José M.

Hi Hernan,
Such a little character your little Johnny bird. Such an interesting behavior for a bird. I've never seen birds do this before. Thanks for enlightening my day. Janice :)
