Yes eye ring and crown nail it.Also black bars on back.Have never seen one this colorful before. Great image ! They can be very flitty so capturing this so well is a feather in your cap.

Indeed, I was on my way home when one just started hopping from branch to branch right next to me.  They really don't stop moving very much, do they? Later, after realizing I had a pretty good image and after learning that the red crown is not always visible, I could not wait to get a confirmation 🙂
