Rare Bird with my X-T3

Here in Denver, we currently have a rare bird hanging around, a Groove-billed Ani. Their normal range is South and Central America and up through Mexico to Southern Texas. This bird is way out of range (a vagrant). It stayed in dense thicket and I had to photograph it through a a fence. I used both manual focus and auto, but the method that worked best was single point auto with the smallest point possible so that I could focus on the head and not lose focus during bursts. This is a lifer for me and my equipment didn't let me down.

Thanks for looking,
