Allcomers at an Avian R&R
Passerines, woodpeckers, warblers, jays…it was a truly a motley crowd that turned up at this watering hole for their routine rest and refueling on a warm Mediterranean morning. The frenetic avian activity was captured on film by nature and wildlife photographer and GOT member Pedro Rubio Garcia in the woods near the Catalan rural town of St. Agnés de Malanyanes, using a Canon XF300.
