The wife and I took a trip up to the panhandle area of Florida over the weekend and while I was looking for herps actually had much better luck with the birds. Here are a few of the better pictures from the trip.

This first one is actually from Alachua County. Spotted this rare thing about 2 minutes after departing from our home.

Whooper!

Then once in the panhandle we saw a few more feathery friends.

Beautiful shots, as usual. That male hooded merganser is crazy gorgeous.

Thanks for the kind words everybody. I wasn't sure how they would turn out since all but the 1st were not taken with a dSLR. I have a magazoom type camera I bought a while back and it seems to do a pretty good job.
