Default Different bird in the swamp tonight

I'm not used to seeing these guys in the little swamp that often so it was a great night for me. I'm hoping they'll spend more time there. 510 70 300 ISO400 F5.6

Now they are good photos Eric, nice capures.
We have flocks of them up here but you just can't get that close.

Really good, Eric! I don't think I've ever seen a photo like that last one.

Thanks guys, he was about 40 yards away. A little over cropped but I've never had the opportunity to get one in flight, it was a treat for me.

Thanks again folks. I have to sift through the photos taken and see what else I can save. Had a vulture flying overhead as well so I wasn't a boring night
