Handsome fellow! I like the concentric circles in the lake. Looks like someone was just in there moving around...

What a gorgeous profile!! And with the green around its eyes, its either turning into breeding plumage or just finishing. Lovely.


Sending along my heart felt thanks for sharing this awesome post and photos!! The birders at I'd Rather B Birdin' are beholding to you.
