nice photo…great detail!
Thank you. The purple spot caught my attention.
welcome…interesting there is just the one purple spot…although that isn’t all that uncommon
Really! Why isn’t it uncommon? And why would the one purple spot be an evolutionary benefit? I’m new to birds.
Gorgeous photo – beautiful bird. Do you know what kind of bird he is? Looks sort of like a New England Grouse, but I don’t think any of OUR birds sport purple (that would be far too flamboyant for a New Englander)!
No I don’t, I just like the colours. Thanks for looking!
