Hello Paulo,
Fantastic photo of this special mockingbird, which I've seen in your country a few years ago. But I didn't have a good photo of it. Next September I come again, so I hope to get a new chance.
This is the best photo of this species I've ever seen. The pose is gorgeous and taken from a great low POV.

Hi Paulo. You don't get a clearer shot than this. Well done. That's one alert bird. Nicely framed. TFS Trevor
