Flight of the Intruder

March 20, 2015

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. 🙂
