Your world wide bird ID skills and knowledge amaze me almost every time you comment.
Most of us are localized (or have one or two regions we have insights on, but you take the prize for sure !

I would never, ever argue with jack on any bird names. I'd loose every time :lol:

Clearly this was harsh sunlight, but you have made the most of it to capture a really interesting shot with crisp plumage detail.

Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.

Nice pose and lovely bokeh. I so wish we had these birds in the UK.
