Sven Začek - Bird of the year
The common kingfisher has been chosen as the bird of the year for 2014 in Estonia. In the coming days I will write an article about my encounters with these fabulous birds over the years. I was also asked to present a slideshow at a yearly gathering of the Estonian Ornithological Society in early December. I am really looking forward to going through my archives and putting together a presentation of my time during several winters and summers. I leave you with a simple summer portrait with a lush green background still wet from the morning rain.
