While I was shooting canaries and chiffchaffs I noticed, off in the distance in the overgrown fields, these birds with a speck of white in them. Couldn't get close enough for the life of me for a decent capture, so I had to settle for these two, taken at extreme range and cropped as best as I could. I thought you might enjoy the colouration of this bird.

2. As much as I explored other parts of the island, this was the only time / place that I ever saw these guys. Cheers, Dan

Wow, that is strange color on a bird, but very nice shots.
