... but I'm flying behind."
Well... my apologies, Jackson Browne. That's what this reminds me of.

Took this last week - sunrise from our veranda at the El Conquistador in NE Puerto Rico.
That's Palomino Island in the foreground.
Pretty sure the bird on the left is male and it looked like one claw was clipped. The one on the right had a few missing feathers. But, ya know - it was hard to tell for sure at that distance.
