Shrek, is that you?

Is there any North American bird species that can even come close to this magnificent plumage? Not in my opinion! This is the first time I have been able to capture the horns, which reminded me of Shrek, minus the ugly.






I have never seen more beautiful tufts!



What a beautiful bird!
