  1. I was out for a walk the other night and saw one of these birds hunting bugs in a front yard on Seminole. I stood very still and it went about it’s business. It was a surprise to see a bird that large in the neighborhood.

  2. Just saw one of these tonight in our front yard in Frisco. He was forging in the yard but eating acorns. I hope that’s okay for him to be eating I have a couple of pictures of him/her but don’t know how to attach them.
