Never seen one of those before Rye ...  what unusual crimson eyes too ... You seem to have seen some unusual  wildlife at Chester Zoo... #2. For me .... the whole bird and an uncluttered  background make it the most aesthetically pleasing for me ... lovely iridescent plumage shown well with the light .

Thanks Clicker, yes I was a bit annoyed about missing the end of it's tail in the fourth image, but they are free flying so almost like watching birds in the wild.

The red eyes are very unusual.  
Probably a stupid question (I'm good at those!) - are there "fat" & "thin" birds or is it just that they puff out their feathers?

Yes, there's a good selection of different animals, to be honest you probably need 3-4 days to do it justice especially if you wanted to see everything, I was there 6 hours and completely missed several areas.
