Where is my bird?


I always admire some of my friends who are able to find hawk, robin or other type of bird along their trekking trails. They showed and they talked in their posts. It is too bad for me on my weekly routine where I see monkeys and only monkeys which I have mentioned earlier.

Actually I do not know why it is so great for me to talk about birds. Ha ha!! Jealous? Maybe. Anyhow my fate changed when I have visited Kangar.

At the time I was at Kangar, I managed to find various types of bird and of course, I quickly kept them safely inside my pictures. They are mine and for me to talk and to show off.

Yes, they must not fly away from my sight. How can they fly away once I captured them in my memory card?

But everything turned out to be very funny, I have lost a few of them.

Within the mess of leaves, I cannot find my bird. I enlarged the picture, yet there is not any sign on its appearance, even with the help of my son who I think should own sharper eyes than an old man.

This is not a haunted story during seventh month of Chinese calendar. The sun was very bright in the middle of the day.

Then I asked myself a question: My friend played the squirrel game. We were asked to look for the hidden squirrel in the picture. Did he share the same experience as mine, though he managed to locate it later?

When I was at the shop to decide to buy my camera and accessories, the promoter told me it was not necessary to buy any expensive lens for a bigger image. Most of the professionals just crop with the help of software. Then now this is my latest trial result and a real weird experience.

Finally, I strongly believe the bird is still safely kept inside my picture, if you are good enough, help to bring it back to me.

oh, i would love to see monkey in the trail too, but i don't think i'll ever see one in the trails here :(

oh, it is very hard to see the bird, maybe i did not see one. but let me guess, it in on the top left, a little bit above the bigger branch perched on smaller branch but is hidden with the leaves.

I did have a slightly similar experience with my squirrel, but I had very many other pictures of it to help me locate it. It didn't move for a long time.

I wish I could help with your bird, but I can't find it anywhere. I tried enlarging the photo too. I wonder if anyone else can find it.

See, I'm not the only one who wants to see monkeys. You are very lucky to have them there. We Americans only get to see monkeys in a zoo.

Yo oh oh!!

Betchai...I can't find the bird myself, so I do not have the answer, but my focus point is at the center where the bird suppose to be...
Thanks for you comment.

Ratty...From all comments, it really urges me to show more pictures on monkeys.

It might be upper left center where there picture is more dense. Great puzzle!

The Retired One said...

Nope, I think it is on the right on the smaller branch (above the larger branch). But it would help if you could tell us the color of the bird you saw!

Mother Goose and The Retired One... Thanks for your visit and participation. The bird has camouflaged itself so effectively that I has lost contact with it.
Luckily it called me just now.
It appeared as a yellow image, 30 degree downward right from the center of the picture,somewhere in fromt of the big tree.

I can't see your bird. I once took a picture of a tree in which a barred owl was sitting. I was looking right at it when I took the picture. I have never since been able to find the owl in the picture!

I'm still having trouble seeing it. :-( I think its on the right, just to the right of the edge!
