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.
Just another interesting little incident.
