This is the Vulturine Guineafowl - Acryllium Vulturinum and here is the Honolulu Zoo web-page where you can read more about it.
You captured it very well in this lovely portrait. The composition is great (although, IMO you could have given it a little more space in front), the colours are perfectly natural, and the DOF is good with excellent details. The BG has a little bit of noise, but it is well OOF and highlights the bird very well. The lighting/exposure was well managed.
Very well done and TFS.

What an amazing looking bird, Stephan.
Good POV with sharp details and beautiful colors.
I agree with Loot that a bit more space in front would give him some room to stare into.
Very interesting addition to the bird collection on TN.
TFS. : )

An excellent portrait on this Guineafowl. Amazing and unique colors and plumage. Nice and sharp with a good OOF backround. I like the tight crop and frame filling composition. It looks like you got alot of nice shots on your trip to the islands. This looks great!

Heureux de revoir de tes images. Un animal qui a une tête pour les bandes dessinées. Exposition et netteté excellentes. Cadrage et exposition intéressante. La lumière diffuse présente des détails excellents sur toute l'image.
Belle performance et merci de la partager.
