A birdcall echoed through the trees under the beating sun in Wakamow Valley.
I looked up, watching and listening. The bird circled around and flew across from branch to branch. Quickly, I used a telephoto lens to zoom in to get a closer look.
Spotting birds isn’t easy, but it’s made a little easier with binoculars or, in my case, a zoom lens. Fran Kerbs, an experienced birder guide from Regina, identified the species of bird. She told me she started out as a general photographer before she really got into birding.
