Tropical Kingbird

A phone call from Guy Monty woke us from our data entry on this wet and cold afternoon. “Wanna chase a bird?” were the words spoken. My silence prompted Guy’s next words; “Tropical Kingbird”. Within twenty minutes Guy, Lori, Nolan and myself were driving towards Fairwinds Golf Course in Nanoose. On a residential street, just short of the clubhouse we stopped! Above us, on a wire sat a Tropical Kingbird eating a dragonfly. The bird moved around a few times and though the weather wasn’t great we all got good looks. Mike Yip had found this bird whilst out golfing…. Who said, 'Golf, the best way to ruin a good walk'? Winston Churchill, I think!
