Good composition and nice colours.
I think this bird look similar to the one from Philip (netfalls) post - title "Coracias Caudatus". I hope that will help.
Thanks for sharing.

I've never seen such lovely colors on a bird. Very beautiful, I like the way you've left the branches and the orange colored leaves complement the bird's colors.

Excellent capture, the bird is maybe softened to much and lost detail, but as a whole this is a sure winner, well done!

this would have been excellent if it was sharp. Loss of feather detail and softness spoil what would have been a great photo.

Un des plus belle oiseau que j'ai vue. Très bonne prise de vue avec une belle composition, mais un légé floue dans la photo. Merci et bonne journée.

Saskia, its a very lovely and interesting subject you captured. A colourfull composition but it could have been better if the sharpness improved. I guess the main reason for this is the distance to the subject and the amount you cropped.

Hi, it really looks like my Coracias Caudatus.

The shot is good but focus a bit soft.
