What an interesting bird. I've never heard of it. The eyes and black feathers remind me of a grackle but look at those talons. It almost suggests a bird of prey. Very nice capture.

Great details, perfect exposure and razor sharpness. The gaze was well captured. Would have been excellent if the sun is at an inclination; however, who can control that. Congratulations for the great work.

Another thing I would like to say is the naturalness of the image. By that, I mean the presence ofthe stray light in thebackground as a result of the lighting up of the air particles by the overhead sun. Often time, we like to reduce the stray light by modulatingthe light intensity andcontrast. But then, the image will become darker in tone and lesser in details and worse still unnatural. Watching your photo, I was like birding in the field.
