Jake,
Thanks.  It's actually part of the natural vegetation that surrounds the pond.  This is always better because it doesn't wilt and because it's always there, the birds land on it more often than something introduced.

Lovely Gene. What time of day are your shots taken at.

Kim,
As you know, it's all about the light.  This was taken in the morning.  We arrive at the pond as the sun is rising, and set everything up to be in the blind as the first light hits the perches.  We leave when the Sun becomes harsh.  This one was taken at 10:30 AM.  About at the end of good light.  Also, the blind is set up so that the Sun is directly at your back.  This allows photography without having to worry about shadows.  Thanks for asking.

Nice HA and open beak...
Frame could use a bit more saturation for me to bring
out all the nice color.
