    B]Having a blast down in Hermosa Costa Rica, Waves have been great (will post them in a different forum) and finding all kinds of birds with out really looking. Back to Florida 5-14.
    First I'll start with these:, thinking Hawk in the first 3 pics, Caracara's of some sort in the rest and the last one is a Black Hawk, found him in a Mangrove. Everything but the Black Hawk was shot on or with in 20 feet of the beach at our house.[/B]
    Next i will post some strange tropical looking birds!

    Great shots!
    The caption for the second one should almost be:
    "How about I fly beak-first into your lens?!" :p

    Caption from #6: "I heard about this guy from my cousin up north."

    Great shots, Eric. #7 is interesting -- looks like a mini-Bald. Is he some sort of fish eagle?
