[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From my recent one week holiday in Cuba
This picture was taken with the help of Paulino Lopez Delgado, a very professional and knowledgeable bird-watching guide from Cayo Coco.

The Red-legged Thrush (Turdus plumbeus) is a species of bird in the Turdidae family. It is found in the Bahamas, Cayman Brac, Cuba, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Puerto Rico. It formerly occurred on the Swan Islands, Honduras. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montanes, and heavily degraded former forest. This species may be considered the Caribbean counterpart of the American Robin ,as it has similar habits, including being a common visitor to gardens and lawns.

Superb shot Mario,

The colours in this image are beautiful with excellent detail, amazing eye contact, and excellent separation from the natural background, really nice work,

Cheers Rick :)

Once again well done, Mario.
Very good depth of field; the Red-legged thrush is overall sharp.
Secondly the photo is well composed.
Finally the moment is well chosen; good posture and perch.

  • Great

Hello Mario,
There's something strange about this Thrush, it lost a part of its plumage around the neck.
Another rare bird of Cuba. Very sharp and in beautiful natural colours. The BG is a bit busy, but the bird is excellent photographed.
Kind regards,
