Those 2 birds I got to shot at a small distance, but it was for the window of the car. They are unfriendly!
Common name: Quero-quero
Another name: téu-téu, terém-terém and frighten-herd
Name in English: Southern Lapwing
Name in Spanish: Tero común
Scientific name: Vanellus Chilensis
Filo: Chordata
Class: Ave
Order: Charadriiformes
Family: Charadriidae
Characteristic: It possesses 2 rams under the wings. He/she makes the nest in the ground.

Geographical distribution: South America, from Argentina and east of Bolivia to the right margin of low Amazon, in Brazil.
Habitat: He/she inhabits the great humid prairies and cast on the shore them of the rivers and ponds. I want-want is it a bird of the size of a partridge and it is characterized by the ash-clear general color, with black ornaments in the head, chest and tail. The belly is white and the wing has green-metallic feathers. It presents a plume in the head's subsequent area; the beak and the legs are red and he/she has a pair of rams in the encounter of the wings. I want-want is it always the first to give the alarm when some intruder invades their domains. It is a quarrelsome bird that it provokes quarrel with any other species inhabitant of the same prairie. The capybaras remove good advantage of the coexistence with I want-want him/it, therefore, according to the intonation, the scream of that bird can mean danger. Then the great rodents seek refuge in the water. I want-want him/it, it moves away the intruders that he/she approaches his/her nest, pretending to be wounded.
Do I like the picture and you?

Muito nítida, realmente está ótima, cores, contraste e até a composição. Ótima foto. Parabéns.

Good shot, nice sharp details and I like the pose of teh two lapwings and the background.

I like the POV those red eyes make them look very menacing.

Está tudo muito bom, não sei o que melhor, composição, nitidez, cores e os próprios pássaros que são bonitos, nunca tinha conseguido ver um de perto, eles são normalmente muito arredíos e ao mesmo tempo bastante barulhentos onde veio o nome.
Muito boa foto.

Bem nítida, contraste, cores e composição ótimos.
