It is difficult to capture the passage of small flying birds. Large flying birds are fairly easy for a camera to record, but small ones — ah, there’s the rub.
Below are three picture of two species showing the flybys of small birds.
While the Wild Turkey is a large bird, its chicks are not, and I have rarely even seen one fly. Here is a Wild Turkey chick flying in the shade against a sunny background.
The same chick then flew into the sunlight.
A small bird that is always difficult to capture mid-flight is the Spotted Sandpiper.
