As usual, I have no idea what kind of bird this is however, he (she?) does have the right idea. Cheryl and I are taking off for the gulf coast in the morning so you won't see any posts from me for a few days. We're driving, well, I'm driving this time so it will be a long road trip, about 15 hours each way. I will be testing Cheryl's car ride endurance this trip. LOL
The bird was sitting still and posing nicely for me but just as I pushed the shutter release he decided to take flight and this is the photo I ended up with.
