he looks downright mean! (great shots though). I was just ahead of you and heard the ruckus. thought maybe a rogue had come into the Park. the previous pair were so loving. maybe this is a takeover, a new male mate(?) Met a fellow at GH who said this same pair were on top of the Sequoia at Moss & Richardson yesterday, having one heck of an argument. If it was a totally new pair, they would have been chased out of the Park by the regular pair. Should be an interesting Spring with these two.
the lady Kingfisher now has a mate! he is flying noisily up and down Goodacre Lake establishing territory.
saw the American Black Duck again on Fountain Lake. he is pretty aggressive too, chasing Mallards who had bits of bread a kid was throwing out and biting the ones who got in his way.
a Varied Thrush was up in the trees behind the Zoo.
