All these images are of the same Willet. He has taken on the role of marsh protector and followed me for half a mile warning everyone and their mother-in-law that I was around.

While he didn't dive bomb me, he did make some passes at the dog, a foolish thing to do, since if the dog had noticed he would have snagged this bird in a moment. But fortunately Chato didn't, so he will no doubt greet me on my next trip

He was cursing me out through the entire morning. I would translate but this is a family forum...

I find this peculiar. The Killdeer curses me out through the Spring and then there's a shift change and the Willet takes over.

They don't nest in this marsh. In other words, there are no babies to defend. And he follows me from one end of the marsh to the other, always keeping up his swear words...

And man does he hate the dog! A good thing the dog doesn't know about it, because he can catch these birds. I had to train him not to. Training or no trainig, if he knew he was being attacked he'd jump up and grab him.

These are all great shots, Dave, nice going on the Willet. I love this bird too, it's one of my favorite shorebirds. And they don't fly slow, either, so you did good.
