Rolinha-fogo-pagou (Scardafella squammata)

Gosta de restingas, campos, cerrados e caatingas, mas pode ser encontrada também nas cidades. Mede cerca de 20 centímetros. Seu alimento básico são grãos e sementes. Constrói o ninho em forma de tigela, onde põe dois ovos brancos. O canto traduzido como "fogo pagou", deu origem ao seu nome.

Hola Paulo,
Otra magnífica foto de rolihas pagou fogo, como le dicen en Brasil. Nunca las vi personalmente, pero por tus fotos me parecen magníficas.
En esta foto creo que el fondo resulta escencial para resaltar a estos pájaros.
Un abraço

Hello Paulo,
Excellent shot of these Scaled Doves. Beautiful birds and a great capture. Great detail and beautiful colours, especially in the background, perfectly defocused and a wonderful warm colour. I might have cropped a little from the top, which I think would balance the shot a little better. Excellent work.
Regards,
Adrian

Paulo,

Excellent detail, Sharpness and BG. TFS,

Paulo, por falta de tempo, tenho andado distante daqui.

De qualquer modo, que foto legal.

Excelente fundo, que contrasta com as aves. Gosto das cores e da saturação.

Bela captura.
