I like the way you filled the frame with all that yellow feathers, with that great detail on it.
It's very good also the eye contact, and the way it stands out fron the black feathers surrounding it.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
It is either Pycnonotus melanicterus, or one of the once related races associated but now split. The bird has a pathology and feather loss on the throat and since one of the ways to separate the races is the presence of a red throat patch the race will remain unknown. Let's just say Pycnonotus melanicterus and leave it at that...

The colours are outstanding.The plumage detail is sharp and well focused.The eye is sharp with excellent detail but it looks distorted ,perhaps by illness or injury.Very good POV and DOF.A very exotic looking bird.TFS

Hi, I enjoyed your story about this little bird. From the critiques I gather he is not in the best of health but he seems happy enough and probably not suffering. You managed nice color and sharpness.

Very well done.

Nice shot Manyee, with excellent composition and sharpness. The colors and contrast are great. The Bokeh is great as well. That is a strange looking bird. The eye looks a bit strange like to many late night arguments with the spouse. :)

So this time we have possibility to watch a real "fun bird" ;> Great shot! I like the pose of this beautiful species, its colours (mosaic of tones is just great). You perfectly controled also DOF and light.
Bravo also for interesting and inormative note.
TFS and best greetings from Lodz,

This bird apparently has injuries on it's Rt eyelid & throat, since males are known to fight viciously & fiercely for mating privileges during narrow time windows. Over all a good picture with faded background where bird stands out. Cheers.
