Having breakfast seeds
, I present this capture of the Rufous Hornero (Furnarius rufus).

Male and female share the familiar responsibilities: they collaborate in the preparation of the nest, in which the female will put of 3 to 6 white eggs, that will incubate one after another one. Similarly they will educate both to the chicks, directing them under a careful monitoring to the adult state and independence.

The denomination of hornero (or bricklayer) must that - during the rainy station it constructs a voluminous nest in furnace form, with a lateral opening. The walls of this nest are formed by mud, are mixed with little straw, branches and small pebbles.

Once they harden, these buildings are so solid, that they remain in good state, in spite of being outdoors, during several years; of this form, the pairs remain in the same nest, from a station to another one. It begins to construct the nest in the autumn, uses for it mud and straw, that transports in the tip, in this task
collaborates the pair and works without rest the day throughout, until finishing, and demonstrates to its joy with whines and songs.

As it constructs the nest with mud, the work begins after the time of rains. First they knead the material in the environs. Soon they construct the base and they decide the direction of the nest. When the plinth is ready they begin to raise the wall in semicircle.
Finally it is closed the vault, with a door in form of nose in one of its sides.
Finally the horneros close that nose in spiral, inwards of the nest, and that way it is formed an inner camera, that will be the true nest and that the pair will upholster with pens and leaf.
They smooth the inner walls with the tip or with the help of a straw when the mud still is fresh.

I love the lighting in this shot, especially how it shines through the feathers. The shot has good DOF and detail. Thanks for posting

This is a nice POV and pose of the bird against the sky. Nice note too. However, the underside is unerexposed. You can use Variations in PS to lighten your shdows, or the use of fill flash will also help. The jist looks like a thrush, but I could not get info one this.

Very nice Ricardo.
Good colors , good composition and good DOF.
Great note

very good lighting here, I know iti is difficult to get the lighting right in these circomstances.. good composition and note .. Well done !!

Nice pose, and the bird is beautifully set off against the blue sky. It's correct that part of the belly is somewhat dark, but I don't know if your flash would have been able to reach sufficiently far to be of any help.

La leggera sfocatura data senz'altro da un teleobiettivo, ma rimane la bellezza e la fierezza di questo uccello che scruta i suoi confini!!

Ricardo, sempre gostei muito desta foto. Gosto da pose do p疽saro e das cores. Quanto pose, ele parece estar numa atitude desconfiada, como quem observa com aten鈬o o que est ocorrendo em torno. Ele parece quase assustado. Bela foto.


Iエm sorry, but I think this bird is the Turdos rufiventris. Besides that it is a great picture, even shooting just from below, you got a side light that was just great.

Gustavo is correct. Turdus rufiventris.
