The Evil Stare
No matter where I went!
Ohhh, a baby! No wonder!!
Remember a few posts ago, I put up a picture of a
Willet (Catoptrophorus semipalmatus)
in the treetop?
He was protecting a nest, as well. And now there are three!
The Eastern races of both Willets and Savanah Sparrows nest in the grasses,
favoring wet meadows by the shore.
An interesting note about the Willets - the female departs
after 2 or 3 weeks, and the male becomes
responsible for the young.
My meadow abuts an old church, and these willets,
alarmed at my presence, sought refuge in the graveyard.
