Thank you very much Watson5 for the kind words. There was a nest nearby and he and a female didn't travel very far. So I just waited until I had opportunity to take a picture. It took a while and was rather difficult. I'll post a picture of the female soon.

What a great picture of this beautiful bird. I'm amazed it held still long enough for you to get these shots. Thanks for sharing this one!
