Really impressive polish and clarity here! The bird, branch, and background are all vibrant and interesting (I like j3rmz0r's comment). This makes for a very cool desktop.

Wish I could see the front of this beautiful bird. Excellent shot. I know how difficult it is to get perfect animal shots --- they never seem to keep still.

A beautifully captured moment. The color and setting are truly amazing. Thanks for sharing :D

I love this, simply love it. The fact that the bird is hanging his head and turned away adds to the story of being confined to his fictitious world. Bravo.

This is not a chicken hawk as someone mentionned. I don't know what is this bird but it sure ain't a chicken hawk.

BTW this is my new background :D. Great work, mysterious because you can't see the face yet it makes the viewer content with the contrasting monochromatic colors.

Freaking amazing. Truly astounding. I love it. Just perfect. I was shocked to see this.... Its been a while since I have seen a image with such intrigue and beauty.

This is an amazing shot. The bird is a green cheek conure. I own one. For a small bird they have a huge personality, and can be mischievous. For those without experience, be thankful you only have the "still" version ;)

I do not believe it is a green cheek conure. This bird was quite large. Next time I visit the Bronx Zoo I will make sure that I write down the name of the bird. I appreciate all of the comments. It is really nice to hear good things about my first IFL posting.

I have done some research and found out that it is a Nicobar Pigeon. Mystery solved.

Absolutely GORGEOUS! I am extremely particular about my wallpaper choices, and I knew the second I saw this photo it was the one I wanted. Everyone at the office loves it too! Thanks for your further research on the type of bird. It was interesting to see other pictures of the Nicobar Pigeon and none compare to yours! Bravo on your photography skills!

It is a Nicobar pigeon. The bird in the image you posted is not a Nicobar Pigeon. This one is better, http://www.djsphotography.co.uk/images/Rainforest/Nicobar-Pigeon-01.jpg

exceptionally beautiful, awesome, excellent, perfect, mysterious, jaw-dropping, stunning, brilliant, blah blah blah wallpaper.
i think if the bird had faced the camera then this wallpaper wouldn't be this wallpaper.
Thanks Gawd, the mystery of the bird's name is solved, otherwise i was dying to know it's name.
such beautiful wallpapers are so rare.
