Nice work on these, Eric. The first PBG is excellent. The secret is out, golf course ponds are a great place to find birds somewhat acclimated to people. I've found that some golfbags (older Hoofers, e.g.) make a great tripod carrier.
Not sure why the birding leadership changes bird names but I think Moorhens are now Common Gallinules.

Thanks so much and now I get the confusion with Moorhen and Common Gallinule and why they look so much alike...cuz they are the same bird
I was driving myself crazy trying to figure out the difference...but there ain't any

They are all great, but I love the reflection in the 1st one and the 3rd one (mom and 1 baby) is just awesome.

What a fine set, the Gallinules and, especially the Ani, Eric.

Hmmmm, I don't golf but maybe I could be a lens caddy

Seems there is always a nice assortment of nature surrounding and on the grounds of a golf course and this sure prove it!

Excellent shots, they all made the fairway or you 'birdied'?

Nice outing Eric

Eric,
Shooting a 74 is okay for some, I guess.
What did you get on the back nine?

Thanks Rex...I was pleased the Ani picked the location it did...mighty good choice of a place to perch!

Hey Karl, I could always use a lens caddy...a little advice on which to use and how to frame the shot...welcome advice anytime. I also think that because the course hasn't seen any action from golfers in a few years that the wildlife is a bit less wary and more approachable.

Very nice pics Eric in what looks like some tough light for the Moorhens and seems you found a great spot for bird photography.

Excellent Eric,
That Smooth-billed Ani is an interesting looking bird.
I don't think I've seen one before, overall great stuff.

Very nicely done Eric. the little ones sure are cute. It's a shame you didn't shoot the Ani in an oakly tree ~ Ron

I had visited that place many times...usually I was dropping a ball and taking a penalty so it was nice not having to do that this time

Many thanks Tim...I had seen them before on the property and was hoping to get another opportunity and just got lucky with the setting.
