Here's a cross-section I shot the other day...

A female green-wing teal taking a shower...

A rear view of a male meadow-lark. Not sure what exactly his was trying to accomplish by posing like this but it looks kinda cool anyways!

A Palm Warbler.

Now you tell me, was this massive pelican laughing or merely yawning in the morning sun?

Love the pelican! That is a view you do not see very often. Looks to me like he's laughing. grin

Your last bird looks a lot like one that X-tackelman posted yesterday. Is it a Swainson's Thrush as well? The Swainson's Thrush and the Ovenbird have a lot of similarities, which is why I ask. Either way, it is beautiful with the reflection!

Love the pelican!!! Was it taken on Sunday? Maybe he is looking for manna from heaven. Or preachin' to the flock. I wonder is Fishinchicks isn't right on the oven bird/thrush id, but the photo is lovely. The last meadowlark is really nice, too, but the pelican is priceless.

Another outstanding series Stu, and I too think that pelican is a really special shot - not matter what s/he's doing!

I did some serious research on that possibility however I came away going with the Overbird based on my findings. There is however a lot of similarities! Here's a Swainson, notice ther's no yellow around the mouth and also the color of the legs...
