Observation details

Bird was perched on east side of fence near south end of street. Large black bird with long black tail and giant honking bill. First saw bird after I heard it making an odd chirping vocal. A life bird for me. Bird then flew out of sight at south end of street. Would probably be difficult to relocate over the barbed wire fence private property. Photos attached. Originally had ID'd and entered this bird as Groove-billed Ani but re-evaluation by experts during Nov-Dec 2017 confirmed that this is a Smooth-billed Ani. Change of ID made on 12/9/17.
