Chestnut-crowned Babbler

After the first rain since mid Winter I made an early morning trip to one of my favourite reserves. There was one small puddle that seemed to attract many birds including this pair of "matching bookends"!


The Chestnut-crowned Babblers are usually very timid but the water made them more relaxed and they seemed to tolerate me hiding under a loose camo covering.
