    I endured the 90ish temps and boiling humidity for about 2 hours at the zoo before nearly passing out, lol. Maybe my best bird shot EVER.

    Thanks Frank, the 200-400VR delivered the goods.

    I am not real sure Frank, I was inside an exibit with a few different birds, I didn't see a sign saying who was resident. It was cool though, you go through a little room, call it a dark grass hut foyer, when you go into the vertical blinds, your in a netted community with water and trees. The birds are right there with you, very cool!
     
  4. Gee that IS a very pretty and interesting birdie! Nice job too!
     
  5. I'm pretty sure it's a boat-billed heron. Cool photos :smile:

    Thanks Alan, with that "jester" hairdo", it shouldn't be to hard to identify huh? :)

    But I don't know my birds, really... I really like the bird though, very cool... Also interesting to note a change of posture really makes it look like a totally different bird. Well, except for that beak, that is sort of hard to mistake. :)
