Beautiful shot of a raven in flight. Tuft of feathers on beak, shimmer in feathers, pointed wings, appears to be raven (rather than crow) sized, with a curved (rather than crow's straight) beak, but I don't know if ravens ever have a hooked beak. The photographer reports the "gluck" sound of a raven (not the "caw" of a crow).

The James's Flamingo (Phoenicopterus jamesi), also known as the Puna Flamingo, is a South American flamingo, named for Harry Berkeley James. It breeds on the high Andean plateaux of Peru, Chile, Bolivia and Argentina. It is related to the Andean Flamingo, and the two are often placed in the genus Phoenicoparrus.
Flamingos are usually thought of as pink birds, but they can display bright coral or red plumage as well. Flamingos are wading birds that live in semi-tropical habitats. The flamingo's color comes from beta-carotene in the shrimp or plankton that it eats. A brightly colored flamingo is healthier than a dull-colored one. Thus, the brighter the plumage, the more desireable a mate they are.

The Rose-Ringed Parakeet is a gregarious Asian parakeet species that has a large range which stretches into the Himalayan foothills. There is now a large population around London, where they are quite OK with the British weather. There are 6 in my west London garden as I pin this!
