Finally a chance to scratch the Azure itch this morning, been months since they let me anywhere near.

Let's hope they stay around and wait for you to come back with the TC

Vermillion Flycatcher. Occasionally seen in S.E. Florida but much more common in South America, Central America, Mexico and Texas.

This Bald Eagle and its mate should start nesting any day.

Tropical Kingbird. Like the Vermillion Flycatcher, this bird is generally considered a vagrant around here. Sorry I could only find him on the wire.

Thank you very much Hans and Joe.

Joe: Any word from the vet on the poor Lorikeet?

Vermillions are extremely responsive to recordings - I've had them almost land on my vehicle while I sat in it playing their call. Beautiful images.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

After my first owl ever, I went back there today after reading a bit more about the species and place.
It appears that these long eared owls rest in groups here during the winter.
I was lucky to find 6 owls on the same tree, but it was hard to capture them all in one go.

The light was poor so I need to go back again, but here a few from today.
Not easy to get a good clear view on them with all the branche...
