|This is a bird I've been trying to photograph for a while with little success. On June 30th I got lucky although it was too close to fit the entire bird|
in the frame. I was thankful I was shooting from a tripod since it was a low light situation however it prevented me from turning the camera 90 degrees to
fit the whole bird. To reach up and loosen the lens collar would have startled the bird more than the sound of the shutter which did get her attention.
Shooting at 1/100th of a second I knew I had to take as many shots as time allowed to get something sharp.
This is presumably a female since the red crest only extends forward to just in front of the eye. Jordan Falls, NS.
