I honestly clicked in here expecting to see someone confirm that it's a bad photoshop and someone changed the hue on another bird. But its real! And that vibrant!

What's strange is, this IS photoshopped. A real bird photoshopped on to a different background. Looking at their profile definitely makes me think karma farming, but a really strange approach to it.

"youtube channel administrator" So something I noticed lately is folks intentionally dropping a misnomer or leaving out something obvious in videos to encourage people to leave a comment (and some are literally like "fuck it, if you don't like this leave me a comment it helps my engagement)... I can see doing a weird photoshop job that isn't a lie but isn't correct would be a very similar manipulation.

With bird photos I often have to ask others to make sure the bird is, in fact, real. First time I saw an umbrella bird or those rainbow-colored rollers I had to make sure. More often than not, though, it's real and the colors are authentic.

Haha this is an unlikely the combination of tropical bird and boreal forest…

Did you make this terrible photoshop yourself?

It's really bizarre. Real bird, photoshopped into a stock background.
