Saw this guy in Austin Texas over the weekend.

What a beauty. Any help in its identification would be appreciated.

Thank you-

I agree on all points.

We did not inherit Mother Earth from our Ancestors.....

We have borrowed Her from our Descendants.

Thanks so much! I was stunned when we came upon it perched on the bridge rail right off the road. I have a video of him flying from a tree branch to this position on the rail. Thanks again!

He looks like a Fred to me.

Oh wait. That's not what you meant. :P

I'd rather be birding.
