Thanks Ed, I think a trip to specsavers is in order, did'nt spot the heading when clicking on the photo that they were Red-shouldered hawks, spent some time going through my Peterson Field Guides to check. Silly me!

Beautiful framing Ed. I'll talk to you about Loxahatchee if I see that I'll be heading to Fla later in the year.
