Very nice Don. I especially like the Black Vulture. Spanish moss always adds a lot to a shot, great texture.

How is the water level at Circle B? Last year the east side(left) of the fist section of marsh was completely dry. The year before water was pouring out of both pipes and the birds were all around.

Thanks very much Steve. I don't recall checking the water levels but all of the bird activity was on the western side of the road. Florida is having a dry spell this year.

Interesting to see both Black Faced and Red Faced, Don, and also makes me happy we don't see any of these up here. There are some down in the southern part of the province and in he Annapolis Valley, but none here. The eagles look after the cleanup here.

Thanks. I thought it was an ideal setting too.

I don't believe I've seen the two types together before Ian. Interesting about your area. In Ontario where I am there are mostly vultures which the locals call buzzards.

Thanks Brian. I have always had problems shooting them in flight which is how I usually see them. So this was a great opportunity.
