BCA News: Fall 2018

Bird of the Day

Bob Turner, RBP, FBPA

Birds & Blooms magazine has selected an image of a Spotted Tohee (Pipilo maculates) for its Facebook “Bird of the Day” photo. The photo was captured by Bob Turner and is scheduled to publish on November 11, 2018.

While on one of his typical morning walks in Encinitas, California, Bob noticed two of the birds foraging among sagebrush, and was finally able to get a clear shot once one of them perched upon a bush. The image was made with a Nikon D5300 camera and Nikon 200-500mm lens (@500mm), mounted on a Gitzo 3532 cf tripod and Whimberly GH200 gimbal head.
