Florida flock in flight - help
Steph posted a topic in Help Me Identify a North American BirdSaw this flock very high in the sky late this morning near Dunnellon, FL. Both photos are enlarged. First photo is with contrast and shows the whole flock. Second photo is enlarged even further but has no contrast. It appears to me they have white heads with feet trailing. Anyone have a guess? Thanks in advance!

Good Morning, I am hoping to get any information about this large bird that was perched on my mailbox yesterday and made me wait to get my mail. My cat has been missing over a month and I'm trying to i.d. all possible outcomes :( Plus the bird is pretty fascinating. It was around 3pm Nov 20th and the house is about a block from the Atlantic Ocean. If I can attach the pictures you can see the white and brown mottled chest, yellow legs and talons, dark brown feathers with white lined tips etc. I didn't see the fly pattern. There were also 9 ibis in the yard at the time and I've never seen that many either! Any information would be greatly appreciated! I read about the red tailed hawk and another named with an "S" but there weren't enough pictures for me to understand the lingo etc. Happy Holidays!! Cheers, Becky Elizabeth
