Hello Alan,
This is a very nice clear image of this interesting bird. Very good details and focus.

Hello Alan,
Well captured. Bit lit on its eye could have been more attractive. I think it is eating a 🦎. Well background although you had to deal with some unfriendly branches.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
