Hello Ang,
Nice picture of the orange headed thrush. We have a similar one here called "White throated ground thrush". A typical habitat shot taken at a nice POV with excellent sharpness and details.Nice use of fill in flash (i presume you used one as they usually inhabit areas with less light.) Good natural colours too.
Thank you for the share,
Smitha.
