Reminds me strongly of Joseph's coat of many colors. Just an outstanding species beautifully captured.

Not Egyptian. Pretty sure this is a King Vulture. Totally brilliant shot anyway!

They have an enclosure full of these at the San Diego Zoo Safari park, you feed them nectar and make lots of bird friends, love the colors in these birds.

Top drawer Kev. I'm floored every time I see this species. So owl like, same family? Relatives? Probably not but still they are right up there in the total coolness factor!

Thanks Doc. Related to owls but their closest relatives are nightjars (below) which has the distinction of being the only bird that I've ever used flash on :-)

Tawny Frogmouths are not related to Owls at all, they have soft feathers, silent flight and are nocturnal but this is their only similarity they have. They have very weak feet and toes and catch their prey with their beak. They are closely related to Nightjars but are there own species shared with Marbled and Papuan Frogmouths.

When they open their eye's it is their way of trying to startle a possible threat, they usually have their eye open slightly ( a slit )

Owlet-nightjars are closely related to Nightjars and Frogmouths but again they are their own species.

Hope i don't sound rude Kev, just want to make clear for our friends overseas.

hoping to see a Grey in Newfoundland.

Best I can do on short notice Robert. processing at 5am has never been a good idea for me. hope its ok

Perfection!

Don't you just love it when these pranksters imitate hawks? Gets me every time.

For me this evening, a Brown-headed Nuthatch that I glimpsed this past weekend on Assateague Island:
