Thank you Barbara... I was very pleased to see him...not a very large bird ..about the size of a small Penguin...not sure what the plume on the back of the head is for, but it added to his beauty.

Great capture Joan; I first saw one of these at the Perth Zoo; had no idea what it was; apart from being a bird.

Fine shot. Sometimes you can catch them posed just right and the look like penguins. This is the bird that really set me on the birding trail.
