And now for a quiz. Can you guess what my 2nd lifer is? Picture was taken yesterday (2/18/12) on the Gainesville-Hawthorne Rails to Trails path, north end, in Gainesville, Florida. I will tell you that nature's camouflage is good on this bird.

Wow! I think that I see the bird, but I have no idea what it is. I will have to take a closer look.

Thanks for the confirmation on the Rusty, yes he is hidden well, but still can be seen and identified.

Haha, fun to spot number two. I know what he is, but I'll let some other folks have a go first. I do love these guys, though - I got my lifers of this species this summer at our Arboretum.

Edit: Whoops, never mind, Hbvol got it.
