Share Your Best Photo of the Day

Went out looking for Storm-Petrels off the coast in St. John's County, FL but couldn't resist getting a photo of these two as we left one parking lot.

Maybe not the best photo of the day but the favorite of the day. In Colorado I traveled 3 1/2 several times to a Wildlife area in NE Colorado to try to see this bird without success. I finally got it as a life bird in Loveland, CO a 60 mile drive for me. Here in Florida I have seen several already including close to home. They only summer here though and you don't see them super regular so they are a favorite whenever you do get to see one.

It looks albino not just leucistic correct?

Looks like it. I’m seeing some red in the eye, and the bill color’s a lot lighter than it would be on just a leucistic individual.

That’s the consensus I’m getting from others. Likely an albino.

A pair of birds: a male and female Red-winged Blackbird from my normal birding spot.  I love seeing the males clinging to cat-tails, doing their mating calls.  The females are more difficult to spot, and stay more in the thick reeds below.
