Great shots as usual. Even the ugliest bird looks good in flight, especially when photographed so nicely! I like #1.

We still have a bunch more due as soon as it gets warmer. Last year the number of them more than doubled around the 15th of May. Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time to look.

I really like the looks of these guys when the sun is shining thru their wings. Evening sun for these photos.
I never realized how many bird species are COMMON to the FL Kays and the relatively desert SW.

Guess they head up there in/towards the summer. (Pelicans tend to leave in summer to but they go up the east coast mostly.)

I think the TV's come down here in winter to mate/socialize leading to it, and then up there to actually nest. maybe. Or do the TV's do their arial courting dances/ballet up there too? Often en mass here... like a dozen pairs almost looking like a waltzing insect swarm.

I like the snaps....With some editing, you should be able to bring out their underbelly more clearly I think

All I was trying to get a look at is the sun and their wings. I will play with your suggestion when I have some extra time. Thanks for looking and commenting.
