    Neat looking bird Scott. I don't know if I've ever seen one before.

    Great catch Scott. Definitely one not often (if ever) seen here.

    Where was this taken?

    Flew, took this one about 20 miles west of New Orleans, LA. in a little town called Norco. The area is called the Bonne' Carre' spillway, run by the corp of engineers. Lots of birds and bugs. I've seen a few Bald Eagles there this year , but no shots of them.

  6. I'm not a bird expert, but I took a picture of something similar, and was told it was a Black Necked Stilt: Himantopus mexicanus.
