This shot must be praised for its uniqueness and though the quality is, as you say, not the best, you have managed to take this from a POV that shows the features of this splendid Ethiopian endemic Turaco.
Congratulations on achieving yet another new species for TN!
TFS and best wishes,

Her ne kadar netlik sorunu olsa da bu çok güzel bir kuş karesi olmuş. Kompozisyon harika görünüyor. Yeni karelerinizde görüşmek umuduyla.

A wonderful bird, seconded by natural frame!
Excellent coloration and contrast.
Really a species well different.
I am impressed with the number of countries you visit!

You were lucky to see this Turaco even once - and to get a fine shot of him. This must be a first on TN so congratulations. You managed good colors and details and a cute pose. I love the white cheek and the red patch around the eye. If not for this most of us would never have seen this exotic bird.

A lovely shot anyway - I find with Turacos that I either seen lots or non. Well seen.

Another interesting species endemic to Ethiopia. It is a very beautiful bird even though it isn't quite clearly in focus here. You still show its markings and colours enough and I love the background of dates and palm leaves. A wonderful composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
