This is a very nice image with exceptional quality. The shape of this birds are almost like the European Magpie, but the colors are not the same.....Thanks for sharing this photo and for visiting my gallery. I appreciated very much.

Birds with black plumages are always a challenge when trying to show detail, but you did a great job on this specimen. Tac sharp focus and just the right amount of exposure. A new bird for me and quite attractive with it's dark colors and bright red-orange bill. The vertical composition works out great for this particular pose and body shape. Excellent eye contact with a tad bit of catchlight. Great work!!

Beautiful bird.....I like its simple but very attractive composition. Very well light and good details. Well managed BG too.
Thanks for sharing,
Thanks, Peter, for sharing this bird, which I understand no records existed in TN. I am South American but did not know, so doubly grateful. A big hug and congratulations for this contribution and for perfectly solve photograph of a black bird in the sun; for me it is a great technical challenge for exposure and color to be concerned.

The harsh light and dark plumage would have been a challenge. The sharpness, nice blurred background, eye catch and the bright bill make up for an excellent photo. The simplicity and shape of the branch is perfect.
Alos nice to see a bit of space around the bird.
