This is a frame I saved today. I compared it to melph68's cam shot, and think it's the same BBJ.

Thanks, PJL and lettuceleaf! :thumbs_up:

Squirrel was my guess on the last shot as well, but even thinking to know what it is I still can't make it out in the first two. :slap: :twisted: :lol:

Lionspoon... your first pic is undoubtedly a Secretary Bird.
