Two sleeping mystery birds

Recommended Posts

Need help with these two birds seen today just NW of Orlando, FL.  I found them sitting on a mudflat on a freshwater pond in the woods.  They were very distant and unmoving for almost an hour before I had to depart.  My digital camera was on maximum zoom and it was difficult to keep them in the field of view even with the camera braced.

Not much else to compare them with size-wise, but I felt they were bigger than a robin, but smaller than a crow (guesstimate).  Any and all help is appreciated.

Thanks!  After looking at a lot of pictures and comparing the distinct coloration patterns on the back, I totally agree.

Without seeing the full head, having a decent size comparison or vocalization, these had me stumped.  I appreciate the assist.
