Not quite as good-looking as the female of this species, but a handsome bird nonetheless, Jake. Well done!

You are certainly getting a good variety of birds on your trip, Jake! A touch tight at the bottom, but a nice view of this male.

Hi Jake. I love these birds! From Laguna perhaps? My primary critique would be that the bill merges with the small tree behind it.
