Tropical Kingbird @ West LA College
- Thu 1 Dec
The bird foraged for over an hour, starting at 9:45 this morning, on
various fences surrounding the baseball field. Encroaching Cassin's
K'birds, and even a too-close Say's P'be, induced TRKI vocalizations.
Refer to LACoBirds #3078 and #3030 for past info.
More than you wanted to know:
Whenever this bird defecates, it immediately bobs, a la Am. Dipper,
several times. When actively feeding, this amusing behavior repeats
at roughly 10- to 12-minute intervals (yeah, yeah, I know... "Get a
life"). Neither of last winter's two TRKIs at WLAC showed this
behavior, so could this could be a different bird?
