  1. The other day a friend of mine said he saw a bald eagle in Rochester, MN (in the city). While this is possible of course, I was skeptical and asked if he had a picture and he did.  He sent me this short video (with the expected quality) of which I took this screenshot.

    My first thought was that this was impossible for me to determine, but when I enlarged it on the big screen I started leaning towards a turkey vulture.

    I am guessing this will be a piece of cake for you to identify, what would be your determination?

    Thanks

    I posted a decent photo of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak last week.  I see those birds in the spring and fall, although mostly in the fall.  It's been one of those birds that I've had trouble getting any kind of decent photo of, so I was happy to get the shot I posted.  Then a few days later I saw this male low in a tree.  Initially it was partially obscured in the branches, but I was able to slowly move where I found a clear window.  The bird was very cooperative and allowed me to take about a dozen photos of him.  Obviously a big improvement over my first post, I was super pleased to get these shots.

    I am very familiar with the situation you describe; patients and perseverance (and luck I would say) get a long way! Great shots!
