It was a grey day so the image is not that good. It was the second time I saw this species and first time I got a shot. And one shot only. Fun thing about it is that I saw it in the same place as I did a little more then 2 years ago. Maybe it is it´s territory but it has no partner. I don´t know if it is a male or female. They are alike.

  1. What an absolutely fantastic bird. I would love to see one.

  2. Most likely the mate is not around this time of year. Many birds go their separate ways when it isn't mating season. But what a handsome bird ... and to tell the truth, I didn't know there was a bird called the Nutcracker. Learn something new every day :)
