      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?
