What an amazing bird - it looks almost like a dinosaur. Excellent composition and the colours are stunning. The image looks a little noisy, which you should be able to sort out quite easily with a noise filter, but apart from that I can't fault it.

Very nice capture, have not seen one like this, very large beak when compared to its head. nice colors and details.
What an interesting capture of a bird I've never seen before. I believe this to be a TrekNature first so congratulations. I've added it to my theme for "RARE or SIGNIFICANT contributions to TN 3".
Although the shot was taken from the rear and from a slightly upward POV it is great that the bird turned to the side (possibly to keep an eye on you) and in so doing it actually gave you a proper pose that resulted in a full bodied shot. On my monitor the bird seems a little unsharp, but there is sufficient detail to satisfy the visual interest. Of course the well saturated colours are just splendid and the triangle caused by the branch (running close to the diagonal line) definitely adds to the success of the composition.
Well done and TFS.
