Handsome bird!

Observation details

Continuing. Perched at the highest point of the bridge and adjacent to the west-to-east lane of traffic that starts in St Augustine and ends in Vilano. I arrived in the area around 11:30am--no bird. I scouted around for several hours, with numerous trips driving back and forth over the bridge, to no avail. True to the reports of many eBirders before me, the bird resumed its customary post in the late afternoon. I parked at the Vilano end of the bridge and walked up the pedestrian walkway to photograph the bird across the two lanes of traffic.
