Maxson treatment plant pits, Memphis, TN
Another unusual bird that shows up off our Mississippi flyway and word quickly spread. Although I have seen them before, never in breeding plumage. It was difficult shooting this one from the car and he would not cooperate as I had hoped. Patience usually pays off and he finally got in the open and actually started preening.
Some cropping, exposure, color and sharpening adjustments were made.
