    Great shots! I think I can ID some of them (correct me if I'm wrong):

    1. Common Moorhen
    2 & 3 (are they the same bird?) 3 is a green heron, not sure of 2.
    4 & 5. Great blue heron
    6. Don't know but it's beautiful!
    7. I think may be a little blue heron

    I'd love to get some shots as good as yours!

    cool set of shots, especially since the latest issue of Outdoor Photography I read had an article on Heron rookeries in Florida.

    #6 is an anhinga. kind of like cormorant but in the darter family
    #7 I believe is a tricolored heron.

    (don't worry I cheated and looked in my bird book)

    Jeff, you got some wonderful shots here! Love the colours. My faves are 2, 3 and 6. Not that there's anything wrong with the others.
