Taking precise photos of birds while in a moving tour bus is not ideal. The following photos were taken on a rainy morning in Amsterdam. The area is a small park where Rembrandt would paint. The pond is named Rembrandt’s pond.
Moorhens Coots were enjoying a morning swim … But the weather was plenty wet without the pond.
These storks were across the road from Rembrandt’s pond.
A nest was nearby high on a pole that I just glimpsed as the bus drove from area. We saw several nests of this type through out Europe. In many areas nesting storks were a sign of luck. Some areas of course additionally believed they brought fertility to the home where they nested.
Further into the tour the guide gave us a heads up to watch for a rather unlikely bird. A quick click gave a drive by capture of flamingos at another park in Amsterdam. Bonus shot of the back of Hubby’s head ; )
The weather was not always the most cooperative for taking pictures of the birds we saw. Again, being in a moving tour bus made captures even more challenging.
