Photographing a cute little pair of birds 📸

in Feathered Friends • 4 months ago

Hello to all bird lovers,

I was anxious to share with you these pictures I took while walking to get some fresh air after a rather rainy day. When I was near the entrance of my house I heard the insistent chirping of a little bird, quietly and cautiously I paid attention until I managed to see on top of a lamppost a beautiful little bird courting its partner.

Hola a todos los amantes de las aves,

Estaba ansioso por compartirles estas fotografías que tomé mientras caminaba para tomar aire fresco después de un día bastante lluvioso. Cuando estaba próximo a llegar a la entrada de mi casa escuché el insistente trinar de un pajarito, en silencio y con cautela puse atención hasta que logré ver en lo alto de un poste de luz un hermoso pajarito cortejando a su pareja.

Because of the height they were at and the incessant movement of the little bird, it was a little difficult for me to take pictures, the bird was very restless, moving from one side to the other.

I assume it was an act of courtship as his song was very beautiful and I could tell that he was trying to capture the full attention of his mate as she flew close to him. I imagine that it is through his warbling that he is able to demonstrate and convey his emotions, which I believe was well perceived by her.

Por la altura en que estaban y el incesante movimiento del pajarito, a mi me costó un poco tomar las fotografías, era muy inquieto, se movía de un lado a otro.

Yo asumo que se trataba de un acto de cortejo pues su canto era muy bonito y pude notar que él trataba de captar toda la atención de su compañera mientras ella volaba cerca de él. Imagino que es a través de su trinar como él es capaz de demostrar y transmitir sus emociones, lo cual creo que era bien percibido por ella.

At some moments I noticed that the cold evening air left him a little breathless, he rested for a few minutes, but without losing sight of her, and whenever he could he flew around her. Here I was fantasizing, I think he was trying to invite her to build a nest.

En algunos momentos noté como que el aire frío de tarde lo dejaba un poco sin aliento, él descansaba por unos minutos, pero sin perderla de vista, y cada vez que podía volaba alrededor de ella. Yo aquí fantaseando, creo que él procuraba invitarla a formar un nido

After that idyllic moment, I went into the house and did some research about them; according to google lens they are a type of canaries, some call them serinus canaria. I don't know if you can see more details in the pictures, but they are bright yellow and have a small reddish tuft, the female in addition to the yellow also has grayish tones, very nice. Their size is about 12 to 14 centimeters approximately, they are very striking birds, but what I liked most about them was their trill, it is beautiful.

Después de ese idílico momento, entré a la casa e investigué un poco sobre ellos; según google lens son un tipo de canarios, algunos les dicen canarios silvestres o canarios de tejado. No sé si logren apreciar mayores detalles en las fotografías, pero son de un brillante color amarillo y tienen un pequeño copete de tono rojizo, la hembra además del amarillo tiene también tonos grisáceos, muy bonitos. Su tamaño es de unos 12 a 14 centímetros aproximadamente, son unos pajaritos muy llamativos, pero lo que más me gustó de ellos fue su trinar, es hermoso.
