I have enjoyed birding a lot of venues in our United States and in other areas around the world, England, Africa, China, Costa Rica and Ecuador. I believe my favorite was Costa Rica.

The bird was perched in a tree near my birdfeeder, but I didn't see that he caught anything.

On my walk into work this morning. It was a nice surprise as most of these guys disappear from around here in the winter so I wasn't expecting it until March/April, especially as it's about -15 and snowy out!
