Golden Tanager

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Viewed 25 Times

“Mirror, mirror on the wall”. Are birds vain? They certainly spend some time looking at reflections of themselves. In all likelihood they view the reflection as a potential rival rather than a reflection of themselves. This bird, a Golden Tanager, watched its reflection in a bird bath for some period of time before losing interest. This was taken in northern Ecuador at Birdwatcher’s House near Mindo. Shot with a Canon R5, 600 mm f/4.0 lens.
