Great minds.  :D

 

I've struggled to tell if that one is male or female, so maybe you know? I've researched the difference, which is mainly a blueish part at the base of the beak for males, and pinkish for females. Looking close at my one though (I have 2 shots of it), it has both a bit of pink and a bit of blue! The other clue is that females apparently have a light brown/orangey ring around the pupil of the eye, which mine has. So I think it's a female. There was something I read that made me question it but I can't remember what.

I'm 100% certain, yours is a female. The male has a completely black iris. A female's beak is uniformly yellow, while a male's got a grey-blue base. I'll show you a male tomorrow (just keyworded them).

 

Cheers,

Philippe

A herd of cows running - Luckily not at me, as I was in their field! Not the best light, but it was late evening.

White-tailed deer. There is a large group that lives in a cemetery close to my home. I guess they know dead humans would not be able to harm them...
