Bit of a strange-looking bird! Was quite large - they can be up to 30c in length and weigh between 190-250 gr.

It has great colors around and below the eye. It is interesting to see these colors only there. Highly detailed capture with good colors.

Nice shot, Peter. I didn't know they were down that way. They are not very common these days apparently (maybe "large" = "good eating" ) I used to see them every day on my property. They were very slow to fly away, preferred to stay on the ground.

A lovely wildlife image. The colors are quite vivid and very interesting. Do you know if these colors depict the gender of the species? Well done sir and many thanks for posting.
