    I would like to see the face closer up.... It looks henish, but at the same time the poof is kinda wild, and it would be the streamers you usually see in the crest of the males?! [​IMG]

    If you could get a closer shot of the front and of the profile, possibly with the feathers pulled back a little so we can see the crest!
