|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]|
In the nature most of the animals, birds most of the time, healthy very difficult of they be photographed. A lot of patience and a good equipment (teles) they help. I Tried to photograph Anu several times. I liked this picture, in spite of the position.

This species lives in groups formed usually by 7 to 15 individuals; at night the members of the group sleep under the dense foliage of a same tree and they maintain a very defined territory, with two areas: one for nests and stay overnight and other for feeding.

Nidificação: the nest, that is done with small branches and leaves, measures about 30 cm of diameters for 13 cm of depth and it shelters eggs of several females; each one puts from 4 to 7 eggs, being able to the total to reach 20 eggs. Each one of these, blue-greenish and covered for a calcareous crust, it measures about 35 x 25 mm, representing 14% of the weight of the adult bird. The incubation lasts from 13 to 16 days and the nestlings leave the nest with 5 days of age; while they don't fly, they stay in the proximities of the nest arising for the branches with aid of the beak and of the feet.

Pois é, José Reynaldo, os "danadinhos" são difíceis de serem fotografados, especialmente por causa da plumagem negra.
Ainda assim, gosto da foto.
Bela composição e contraste. A pose está ótima. O anu parece ter um olhar desconfiado.
uff .... it's me again!
Bonita perpectiva o céu azul está 5*! Bonitas cores e textura! Fica bemana:)
