From my Christmas vacation in Mexico

Way I'm posting it:
This is a common bird but the light, pose and background are all nice.
I also like the overall tonality with a lot of shades of gray.

The northern mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos) is the only mockingbird commonly found in North America.
The northern mockingbird is an omnivore. It eats both insects and fruits. It is often found in open areas and forest edges but forages in grassy land. The northern mockingbird breeds in southeastern Canada, the United States, northern Mexico, the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands and the Greater Antilles.

Awesome shot of this Northern Mockingbird, color tones are simply gorgeous. Love the exposure while the attractive pose shows it's plumage and unique features off perfectly. Excellent eye contact and sharp detail. Great job!!
