Red-shouldered Hawk

We had a visitor this past weekend.
A full grown red-shouldered hawk.  He/she hung out for a few minutes.
Gave me enough time to shoot a few frames.

Swamp Bird

Starting to get cold here is GA, so I thought I would post a pic taken in Key West, FL.

Stay warm my friends.

Freebird

Had to say it-

“‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you can not change
And the  bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can’t change
Lord help me, I can’t change

Lord I can’t change
Won’t you fly, free bird, yeah”

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Pelican

Something to get over the mid-week hump.

A pelican walks into the drug store.  He asks for a tube of chap-stick and tells the cashier to “put it on my bill”. lol.

This was taken just North of Key West, FL. along the beach.  He was nice enough to allow me to get close enough for the picture.

Ostrich Gone Wild

“What?  You talkin’ to me?”
While traveling in the SW, I saw this ostrich on a farm.  What I learned that day, ostriches are mean.
