Psalm 103:1 - 5 Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
This is one variety of the Black-and-Yellow Broadbill. They range in color from black and yellow to black with some yellow and some pink and then some are just black and pink, like this beauty! They do all have the bright blue bill, however.
