Thank you
by: Dara

Thank you so much Brooke! We had a pair of them in our tree for about 12 hours. I was somewhat fascinated by them and wanted to know what they were. I had an idea it was an aquatic type bird based on its feathers and beak. I'm not sure what this pair was doing in Enid, Oklahoma but am glad they decided to visit. Thanks agin for identifying it for me!
