Life on the beach at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and occasional other birding adventures and, of course, piping plovers.

an interesting sight
Saw my first eastern kingbird of the season on Sunday at Colt State Park in Bristol, RI. The little tyrant was terrorizing 5 starlings and clearly getting the upper hand. Kind of the inverse of mobbing. I knew kingbirds were bossy, but this guy was INTENSE. I'm sure if there had been more starlings, he would have gone after them too. I had a good laugh.
