The morning was rather wet and there was no chance to see if our Red-tail friends were in the area. The rain finally stopped around lunch time (as promised by Mr. Weatherman, thank you.), and I briefly saw one Red-tail adult streak across downtown and flew south.
As I walked along Moore Square, several Blue jays were very vocal as if an unwanted guest was in their midst. A large bird flew out from on the oak trees and then… the Blue jays were quiet.
It was the Inquisitor. Still in downtown.
He took off and tree-hopped and I followed.
Legs VS Wings? No contest.
Here’s a close up of the Inquisitor. Handsome bird.
Huh? Who, Me? Aw, shucks! Thanks!
The Inquisitor made a few more hops and I had to run to catch up with him.
He landed on this familiar perch of which this Mockingbird wasn’t too happy about.
This is the same perch Papa used just a few days ago (image below). The Inquisitor must be family. 🙂
