    Picture is Very Blurry.....and not good for ID purposes....
    I think I see some curled saddle feathers, so I will say Roo...
    But we need a better Head/neck shot, and a full body (close up) SIDE shot Please....the less blurry the better we can help you.






    Best Wishes,

    Judging just by coloration and how shimmery he looks I am going to say yes but I would try a better photo from the side.
