Hello Everton,
About the ID: I think it's a Brewer's Blackbird, euphagus cyanocephalus, a female or an immature.
Great sharp-detailed photo in beautiful natural colours and an excellent low POV.

Ciao Everton, beautiful blackbird, wonderful focus and fine details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Everton,

Isn't it exciting to capture a bird for the first time. I have never seen this Blackbird, or any Blackbird, in Tucson and had no idea what it was. A wonderful stately pose, nice colors and fine details. I like the setting and composition.

I'm not familiar with this particular bird, but it is a real beauty. Love the bluish green iridescent colors in it's plumage and also the proud pose you managed to capture it in. Very good detail and exposure!

Wonderful capture of this cute blacbird Everton.
TFS and cheers,
