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.

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.
