A very nice portrait, Zig. Good exposure and a nice complementary background.

Zig, Cool looking bird. Details throughout are outstanding. Especially the whites.

Couldn't believe I  saw one in a bin at a bus station but unable to shoot it before a tourist walked by. It's on my bucket list for next time :-)

What a wonderful description!  :)   The bald head is a bit of a giveaway for a tomb raider.  A nice portrait though!
