not sure what it's looking at, but it does seem to be enjoying the vista...

I like this photograph very much, it seems to radiate a mood of peacefulness to me and I really like the balance created by the empty top and the horizon line background. I'm not even sure what bird this is with that semi-raptor like point on it's bill that seems to indicate that it may be an immature shrike of sorts or perhaps a vireo.

It looks like a Kingbird to me, but not knowing where it was taken or what the other side looks like, I can't be sure which one.

Thank everyone!

-> I believe penolta is correct as this is a Tropical Kingbird (with a yellow under belly) captured in Trinidad as he was surveying the valley below...
