Recently a friend of mine invited me to bird in a piece of forest in his city, close to my city.

The picture below shows the area where we went.

Due to the size (about 3km extension, 500 meters in width), we believed we could find a few nice species in there.

I’ve been there three times, twice during the morning, a once at night to search for some owls.

Below are some of the pictures from these two mornings. Hopefully I can bring some more nice species pictures in the next weeks.

ThePavonine Cuckoo is not an easy finding species. It was a huge surprise to find it in such piece of forest.

Another nice surprise, theHylocryptus rectirostrisis another specie not that easy to find, even harder to photograph.We were too lucky to have played it back, and few seconds later it landed close to us.

And as in always forests, some butterflies were around.
