For such beautiful birds, these buggers are ornery. I spent about 20 minutes taking shots of this guy while he fought off geese, back and forth, in his part of the lake. I’m not sure what the geese thought they were going to get, but they seemed to enjoy pestering him.
Kensington Metropark is a great place to go if you want to get up close with wildlife. They’re used to humans being there, and there’s many kinds of birds. Though the squirrels and chipmunks are getting a bit too close to mugging people for treats at this point.
