This photo was taken in Perico Island Preserve on March 5, 2018. This tiny Falcon is still in winter feeding mode. Perched high atop a long leafed pine tree, it is in resting while hunting mode. Like some shore birds (e.g. Great Egret) it is in stand and wait hunting mode. Next bird up in alphabetical order is the American American Oystercatcher.
