Very common resident. Dark crested head, yellow vent and lack of conspicuous eye-ring identify this species.

Excellent capture of this chap checking his reflection. He'll be off to complain to his hairdresser next, if I'm not mistaken ;-))
Nice and sharp capture with good details and light.
Good work: the composition, contrast and colors emphasize well this beautiful thirsty bird.
