That is a juvenile bird by the way, FYI.

FWIW, I am a hydrologist, too.

Waterengineer, glad you wandered by--always nice to meet another of our kind! Initially I did not realize it was a juvie. In fact, initially I was just so flabbergasted that it would land so close to me I was scrambling adjusting the focal length and tweaking exposure. However, after I got myself together I realized it must be a juvie and it became even clearer once I downloaded and inspected the images (they were taken shortly before dusk).
