Is it from Detroit ?

Lovely series Scott - I beginning to find it's a thrill when you find a bird you've been after and haven't had the pleasure of photographing before ( I had the good luck to find a pair of Hoopoe today) so I think I know just how you feel !

Hi Ed,

Very Nice!!!

I'm partial to #2 as this is the type of shot I like to get if I can.

I imagine I'll never get a chance at one of these though I've heard of sightings. I hear about a lot more unusual species than I get to see or shoot. . . or maybe it's a secret joke for birdwatchers to scam bird shooters like this. . .

Scott
