Bell miner
Parked my car in the forest and when walked out I was amazed by the sound these little bell birds made. It feels like I was in the middle of the bells playing orchestra. More over there were so many of the birds they flew from everywhere and went in every direction. To get a picture all I had to do is stand and wait for several seconds before one landed on this perch.
