Photographer's Note

I took this image from my window.
It is a Myiodynastes maculatus (Bem-Te-Vi-Rajado). First time I noticed this bird it was in a pasture and it was in this same way: open wings, paralizad and with open mouth. In that day I thought it was being persecuted by another wild animal and had escaped. But when I saw this other bird in the same way in my garden I imagine it was a natural aspect of its life, maybe sign of a sexual period, heat or so..

Tirei essa foto da minha janela.
Ele é um Myiodynastes Maculatus (Bem-te-vi Rajado). A primeira vez que eu notei esse pássaro eu estava numa pastagem e ele estava exatamente como aparece nessa foto: com asas abertas, bico aberto e algo paralizado. Na altura achei que ele havia escapado de algum predador, mas depois, ao ver o mesmo bicho no meu quintal e da mesma maneira, acho que deva ser alguma característica do animal, talvez a entrada no período sexual ou até mesmo calor.
