This is most likely a male. A bit hard to see on that distance. It was one of the birds on my wish list for CR. Just wished I had time to see it fishing. But I guess it had a lunchbreak.

  1. I have just moved to a place where these are very common all year long, an improvement from my former situation. Ha! Great pic, agree looks like a male. Cheers!


I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
