I've seen them sitting on poles and wires and flying, but never up close! Nice shot.

@Betty: Magnificent creatures, aren't they? I keep trying to get shots of them flying and perched in the wild. It's too easy when they are in a cage. I almost got a really good shot recently. A lot of detail was captured, but it wasn't in focus.
