Help with some Central Florida birds

Recommended Posts

Very glad to see this great forum back up and running!!

So I rarely get to Florida, but a few weeks ago was there (on a non-birding trip 🙄) and stumbled upon these three potential lifers.

1.  Picture-perfect hawk.  My son thinks Red-shouldered..

2.  Big Heron - a Tri-colored??

3.  Massive seabird - we originally thought one of the Cormorants but it's got such a long neck!  I'm hoping Anhinga..

Thank you

1) Your son is right.  Rusty breast, white edged feathers on the back.

2) I'll leave that to others but I think you may be right.

3) Extensive pale head, neck, and shoulders says female Anhinga.

Nice birds.  Congrats!
