    I am thinking it is an eastern whip or will - at least that is what we called it in Michigan when I was growing up. Lucky you - though I can often hear them - finding them is a whole different effort.

    There are two animals designed by committee - 1st attempt was the horse and the committee came up w/ a camel. Not sure what the target was but the product was a pelican. I just love the oddity of the pelican - simply no other bird like it.

    Thanks! Anyone that loves birds and bird photography should try to visit Ft. DeSoto in Florida at some point. Many species of shore birds are abundant and they tolerate people extraordinarily well. It is routine to approach the birds very closely if you take your time, get low and move slow. I was within 20 feet as I walked slowly past a group of about 100 of these Black Skimmers and Terns. This one flew in for a landing from behind me, I raised the camera and fired away while the rest of the flock didn't even flinch!

    I finally got a shot at a Red Shouldered Hawk. This was at the Circle B Bar Reserve near Lakeland Florida. A fantastic wildlife refuge with extensive walking paths. We found something to photograph about every 50 yards as we took one of the trails that was 2 miles long.....man my shoulder was sore from the tripod!

    Still love looking at this thread! One of the best birding threads on the internet IMO!!

    I still have so many old bird photos that I never did anything with. Here's an oldie but a goodie with new post-processing. I hope it's ok to post older shots here.
