CommentThis young male bird chose an open perch well in front of the surrounding trees and shrubs. The resultant muted green background lets the bird stand out and show off his mottled colours as he moults into adult plumage. I particularly like the reflection in the eye and the detail around the eye which are both not so easily seen in the field.
