just saw an incredible bird in LA -- hard to believe it is native to this area. it was about one foot body length and the tail was another 24 inches. the body was navy blue with a white head with black around the eyes and a black (not sure what this is called) headdress which stuck out significantly like a cockatoo. relatively small normal size beak. tail was also navy blue and i believe it was forked. absolutely magnificent bird -- it had an unusual call somewhat crow-like but less harsh sounding. does anyone have any idea what this might have been?
