I'm guessing you've been on a birding holiday with these superb captures Tim. This is another very fine image and always good to see the bird doing something rather than being on a stick
Great capture

When they land up goes the head gear, then in a couple of seconds its down, so you need to be fast!
The only birds I know that growl!
