Great pictures!! We have quite a few of these in my housing area, and I have never been able to get a decent shot of one. They are definitely one spooky bird and won't let me get close. I notice you took care of that problem by using a 500mm lens. My longest is a 70-300mm tamron.

Very cool series! These birds are supposed to be common in my area, but I hardly ever see them, they are expert at hiding or leaving. I did once watch a male making advances on a female once, it was fun to watch.
