Unfortunately, I've never had trouble getting pictures of these guys. I would get so frustrated when trying to "sneak" through the grove/forest as they would fly around overhead and perch very near and scream at me, letting all the woodland creatures know exactly where I was :-) Beautiful birds though. Nice shot Greg. Thanks

Thank you Brian. I was lucky to catch this guy looking around for a short spell.
