You shall not pass.

Black bellied whistling duck

A fierce little gator

One of three baby white eyed vireos

A day in the life of a nighthawk consists of...

Not Being Seen

Flying around and eating Bugs

and most importantly, Sitting on Rocks

Rocks suitable for sitting on are highly prized and vigorously defended.

After a heated argument, the newcomer claims the rock for himself.

The original occupant sulks away.

The new owner of the rock poses victoriously.
