They are definitely an awkward looking bird. The Buffalo Zoo has some of these as well in their South American rainforest exhibit and I've noticed they like to follow around the Capybara, pecking around the backs of their heads. They seem to be very skilled.

The rich color adds to the soft ("feel", not lack of sharpness) texture of the feathers and the transition to OOF and the nature of the bokeh is very nice.

I'm not expert on bokeh but I will say that I'm very pleased with the way the OOF areas look. My 24-135mm Sigma lens has always produced some nice bokeh.

Again, thank you all for the kind words.

Well Mike,
No matter how many pix you take, when you come home with one this nice, you can say you had a successful day! This photo is on par with any I've seen published anywhere.
