CommentA male eclipse that initiated a lot of discussion on ID as the range of the Variegated and Blue-breasted overlap. Final conclusion was Blue-breasted as the feathers coming in on the breast are dark blue (more evident on other photos) and the pale blue eye-ring that is typical of mature eclipse males which they retain all year.
