Chasco-preto, Black Wheatear (Oenanthe leucura)

Spring is time to photograph.Besides my work all the time I have is dedicated to this passion.Yesterday with my friend João Edgar went to Peso da Régua find another friend who knows where to shoot this bird.700 kms drive and a walk through the banks of the river Douro.This bird is very easy to identify the other hand very difficult to find the environment that attends and its rarity.Is a bird that can be found in rocky mountainous regions of the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa.

I only found one photograph of this bird in TN.

The long drive in search of this Black Wheatear was worth it, Jose. This is a remarkable capture of the bird with its beak open. Obviously, it seems to be excited about something in the vicinity.
