Jabiru in Louisiana

OK this is a little off subject, but this is one bird that I really want to see in my lifetime!

The Jabiru is a stork from Central and South America and is a rare visitor to the U.S.  Sometimes hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico will blow them off course.

There was a FRIGATEBIRD at Big Lake a few years back right after one of the hurricanes. (Big Lake is located off the Echo Trail about halfway to Ely from Crane Lake)
