Iwas born in Montevideo - Uruguay - and I was always attracted by the birds.
Not always with the same intensity or intentions, I went through stages of a hunter, of admirer, of breeder and most recently as an observer and photographer, the birds were always present and marked my life.
In the 60's tried to hunt them.
In the 70's admired them.
In the 80´s I raised them. The exotic in captivity and the natives in semi-captivity (I had a pair of Black-and-rufous Warbling-Finch (Poospiza nigrorufa) that, when the child was feeding out of the enclosure -I never knew for where- and came back with food. The rest of the year remained in the aviary.
In the 90's I started birding at large, trying to identify ... recognize them, how different!, my world changed forever.
Turn of the century and changed an old shotgun -that I no longer used-, for a brand new digital camera ... What a change! What was difficult this new type of game. And what would be best, he could hunt many times. I had to sharpen my skills from 'Predator', hide, wait, call your attention, get out...
When I lived in Uruguay, former associate of Birds Uruguay - Gupeca ", then in Brazil belongs to the founder of" Ecoavis - Ecology and Bird Watching "in Belo Horizonte, at present I share photos in Birdforum and already I collaborated with a lot of scientific works
Since that first photo, I could not stop, I have visited different habitats in different seasons, looking for different situations or activities. I went to the valley and the mountains, I passed by beaches and coastal lagoons, met the brazilian "PANTANAL" north and south, rock fields, meadows, marshes and streams ... But there is still much to learn ... and see.

Title: Synallaxis spixi one of the first contacts... Unforgettable moment! More than just a picture: an event that sticks in my memory. Where: 'Fazenda Taranco' a quiet corner to the west of Montevideu. When: A sunset in early summer. How: Like most beginners, an unplanned event, plain luck.
All this was just the beginning, a decidedly wonderful activity that matures and flourishes with time... and the more time passes, the more absorbing and surprising it becomes.
