Matt 07/10/05 01:14 pm I haven't seen it in the observations lately, but is the red-wing blackbird still buzzing Betty? Or did she finally reject him?
Marie 07/10/05 01:47 pm No. Matt.......I think he had a family below that hatched and now his attentions are else where. He was / bored before hand and needed to show the world that he was a good defender of his chosen territory. His mate was probably on eggs at the time he was bombing Batty. Now he has to get out and feed his young...in other words he is too busy to misbehave .....Just my opinion.
Mickey 07/10/05 02:22 pm a observation from yesterday reports that as watched from below, nothing was nesting in the time shares below Brook+Haven.
Marie 07/10/05 02:39 pm I meant in the rushes of the mash below, Mickey not in the nest twigs of the osprey nest. :-) Perhaps somewhere near to the edge of the river, in tall grasses. Close enough to the osprey nest as well.
Another idea, perhaps this bird never found a female either so was just a nuisance bird. A teenager, in gloriuos breeding plumage but not quite ready for mating. What ever the reason it added colour and action to the nest for a while and Betty thankfully was tolerant.
Melanie 07/10/05 02:44 pm The observation was the RWBB nest had fledged and therefore territoriality was no longer the issue.
