lol... dont worry, its an optical illusion... i was off to the side of it! i couldnt get any closer as its a really skiddish bird. I did watch it go after a black bird 9crow, raven, grackle?) when it tried to land on the branch near the nest hole..lol wish i could have captured that one!

I don't think I've ever seen one of those... the spotted belly is great. I don't take enough time looking for birds. Great catch.
