Large Bird in Flight ID...Horrible shots in shade


Recommended Posts

Taken in Chicago, IL.  It was flying at a far distance and I took a couple quick shots before it disappear, the reason for the photos being awful.  What may this be?

In Chicago we had a YCNH in the spring that stayed a while but it is gone.  AMBI are pretty rare.  BCNH pretty common. Large breeding population at Lincoln Park Zoo.

Yep, this is exactly it. AMBI is not really a breeder down in Central Illinois, though once you get north into Chicago perhaps it might be possible, but definitely not likely at all, especially in the city proper. BCNH, on the other hand, is very common in Chicago, though interestingly not common throughout the whole state
