Taken at Myakka River State Park.
I see these guys once in awhile but they're always in the shadows where it's too dark for a decent shot. I finally spotted a couple out in an open field about 30 m away.

we've got some around here but they're even uglier than these. they're all brown, no red or iridescent colored feathers. and not nearly as well fed.

Very nice! We have some in the reserve that come into the neighborhood, but I haven’t got them yet. One day I will.

There is a reason many don't see them: they see you first! Their eyesight is probably their best defense.
You really got them in some nice light, Kirk and it shows their true coloring. Very nice.

Thanks, Jeff. Hope you get some shots of them.

Thanks, Dean, appreciate it. Yep, their eye sight is very good. They spotted me but didn't seem alarmed and they matched my steps toward them and wouldn't let me get any closer.
