10 Sep Good Bird
This is a good bird.
Because my camera likes it. Or maybe because the bird likes my camera.
In either case, the California Towhee consistently takes sharp photos. Notice the detail in this close-cropped photo.
So I wonder if Canon used a California Towhee as a test image when designing their focusing system.
If you’re out on the West Coast, look for a brown sparrow-type bird that’s about 9-in. (23-cm) long. They often travel in pairs, making a short, sharp “teek” call to each other.
Then call out, “Good bird!”
Here are two excellent books about birds. I recommend both of them.
