That's a fabulous picture you've taken of this ani Celso.

It's great to see you back my friend - I hope you've been keeping well through this difficult year.

May I wish you and your family a merry Christmas.
Gorgeous photo of this strong smooth billed Ani! I love the details and composition. I saw smooth billed anis in Cali Colombia. They are so strikingly beautiful.
Superb shot! And yes, best wishes for pandemic survival in 2021. We just went on another lockdown here as the "Indian variant" seems to have broken through our defenses, probably thanks to some thoughtless idiots going bar-hopping on Constitution Day a couple of weeks ago. So now we can't even go birding outside city limits for a while. Luckily, we have plenty of forests and fjord-shores within those limits. And how is Brazil managing? Is Bolsonaro still blocking all efforts?
