This morning, as usual, I walked down to Ponce Park. I went out on the fishing pier hoping for some feeding activity. I must have been late for breakfast because most of the birds seemed to be relaxing. There were a few gulls and terns flying about and perched and floating pelicans.
One of the Terns decided to take up a spot on Marker 8. Apparently, this was offensive to one of the pelicans who normally like these high perches. I saw the tern coming in to land but didn’t have time to adjust for a white bird or catch the landing. This is a poor picture showing it just as it folded it’s wings. The only reason for putting it here is to mark the time as 09:39:38.
It had barely settled down when a floating pelican seemed to take offense. It took off in the pelicans ponderous manner and took one turn around before flying right at the piling.
This sequence takes place between 09:39:52 and 09:39:54
Just another interesting little incident.
