A pair of these birds have been in my mulberry and hackberry trees for the past week.
18 Sep 2010.
Palmyra Cove Nature Park, Burlington Co, NJ.
Adult. Note the stout, decurved, mostly yellow bill, white underside, and large white spots on black undertail feathers. These rather large birds can be annoyingly difficult to see, even when you know where they are. They are very still, and always behind something.
