I'm starting to see more of these guys now- they seem a bit late this year. they are year round residents but move around according to water levels and availability of the snails

It would be interesting to see where and when the bird was banded.
Nice shots BTW.

. Thanks- I'd like to find that out too. I have a cropped shot that may help with that.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Very cool Bob, they sure are very distinctive birds with that hooked beak.

. They are awesome critters and not always easy to find. They only eat apple snails so more snails mean more successful breeding
