Just got this guy yesterday with a great friend.  A great and fast morning hunt that will be remembered for a life time.

Excellent! Have my first and likely only one on the wall. Definitely one of the coolest looking birds around.

Certainly a beautiful bird and one I'd love to get someday, but I've never seen one over here on the dry-side.
