A very intense expression, even though birds don't have expressions Blush

Great detail on this, though the face patch looks very orange on my screen.

I noticed that too, Alan. I checked it out, apparently there is a fair bit of natural variation between red and orange, with the lighter colours often being this year's juveniles.
