Some of these shots are just record shots, so not very good, but the only shots I have of the species.

Another great series. The northern mockingbird is the state bird of Texas.

Hey Kevin only you can come on a short visit and find the Great Egret that isn't. I think that's a Great White Heron "Great White" Heron - not just a color morph - Sibley Guides


I'm referring to the last shot, the first Great Egret is a Great Egret, notice the black legs.

Also the Florida state bird, it does double duty.

Thank you Steve, got to stop IDing from memory. A very interesting read and looks like a new lifer to me :afro:
