I only know this bird from bird parks. You got a wonderful opportunity to photograph this beauty in these conditions. Splendid light with a great white balance and beautiful colours. Excellent sharpness and a pose with the head in your direction. Very good DOF and composition. A beauty!

Great image. Composition, DoF and framing are second to none, just like sharpness. Beautiful pose of the bird as well. Seems a very little overexposed on 2 very small spots (one around the neck and one on the tail), but it doesn't ruin overall view, the pic as a whole is excellent. Congratulations and best regards, László

Brilliant capture of this exotic Jay from Nicaragua, Ron. Apart from that very becoming head crest, I like the black ring on its white chest.
The bird does seem to be in a happy mood in the early morning hours.
Thanks for sharing another super image from your visit to that country.

Hi Ron, Great portrait of this beautiful bird. They are quite big when compared to the ones in the states, and yes, they are very loud. :)

I first read the bird's name : « White-throated Magpie-Jay »
before opening the photo, when I opened and saw the bird,
I said myself « in North America there is exotic
birds like this ? » and then I saw the place
where the photo is taken and I read your notes.
Excellent photo with fine POV and appropriate framing,
obtaining the bird's eye-contact with you
and with the catch-light rendering the photo
more and more beautiful, TFS
