          Lovely capture. It seems he is a happy little fellow even with his pigeon toes.

                    We have seen this Great Tit around the feeders for a week or two now and have been amazed at how well it copes with its extra long upper beak.

                              Common (Ring-Necked) Pheasant Male Lacking Red Wattle

                              We get these wild pheasants in our garden most days of the year. I give than some chicken grain to keep them off the wild bird food I put out.

                              I have seen many hundreds of cock pheasants, in our garden and out in the countryside, over many decades. They vary in colour and pattern, especially of the wings, and I am accustomed to seeing juvenile males, but I have never seen one with adult plumage but no red wattle. (There is a vestigial one around the eye).

                              This one has been visiting for a couple of weeks or so.

                              Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Panasonic 100 - 400mm Leica DG Vario-Elmar at 173mm (first) then 400mm, 1/80 at f4.8 then 1/60 at f6.3 ISO 800 at f11. Bright(ish) overcast daylight.

                              These images are really about the head. It looks black to the naked eye but, in spite of lacking the scarlet wattle, is quite colourful.
