Beyond the BackyardViera Wetlands

Three’s a Crowd

Sometimes you just have to be in the right place at the right time. A few days ago when I was at Viera Wetlands, I was waiting for a fly-in shot on a nice palm trunk perch. The birds weren’t cooperating, though, and my attention moved to a Belted Kingfisher sitting on a different palm trunk. I noticed a second small bird sharing the perch with the kingfisher, and I moved the camera over to check him out (it was a European Starling). Within seconds, a Double-Crested Cormorant flew in and displaced both the Kingfisher and the Starling. Lucky for me I had the camera on 8-frames-a-second mode!
