Soon to see!

I've been working from Monday to Sunday for some time now, I will do until my birthday in a couple of weeks.

I haven't been able to go birding, but my lovely husband had some spare time last week, and guess what? He went birding (what I miss terribly) not far from home, to a mountain near some Incan ruins.

He found this handsome hummingbird, an absolutely beautiful Green-tailed Trainbearer.

This is a very low quality pic (print screen when he wasn't looking, hehe), the original is so awesome! The glittering green and that long long long tail are just amazing.

I'm planning a short hike to try finding this birdie as soon as my shifts are back to "normal" and I get a full free day.

Hopefully I'll be able to see a few other birds that my hubbie managed to find on his own.

So, wish me luck! In a couple of weeks I might be back to birding and hopefully to blogging, to bore you again ;)

Miss you all!

Maravilloso blog. Vengo de "Planeta Herido" y me siento como en un oasis. Muchas gracias por compartir sabidurĂ­a naturalista, es una delicia aprender. I speak english as well, so it's a great pleasure too, reading both languages.

Take care.

Same conditions for me too Mel. Very busy with my bank job, but making time to go around with my new camera. Photography is thrilling me :)

2011 will be much better for me, for birding and blogging.
