Went back threw all the posts.
It sure is nice to see birds from different parts of the world that I've never seen before.
Thanks for posting them up everyone  :)

There's a lot pheasants around my home but they are very wary of any humans so getting a decent shot is usually not an option.

This morning one was sitting on top of my fence, slowly opened the door and stuck the 200-500VR out to take a few quick images before the bird realised what was going on :)
Cheers,

This is a Purple-crested Turaco. It is the national bird of Swaziland and in the native language it is called a Gwala-gwala.
