CommentAlthough not technically perfect - this image captures one of my most favourite birding memories just as it was. A sky exploding with Chats!
I was sitting in a thick shrubby area surrounded by Crimson and Orange Chats. I could only see a couple at a time feeding on the ground and on the shrubs around me but every so often they would fly up into the sky together all at once! The birds were in breeding colours of bright reds and orange. It was such a beautiful sight seeing the Chats fill the sky!
