Black Vultures don't always wait for dead prey - they can also kill, so keep that little mocker safe until he can fly! They bail out of the nest before they can fly and run around on the ground where they are most vulnerable. Their parents try to protect them, but aren't always successful. I hope that is not the kind of wake the Kingfisher is waiting for! Great shots as usual.
If life brings you lemons, you can make lemonade.
