Feel Privileged!

While fishing the river today I looked up……”Good Grief” I exclaimed….”I don’t believe it” – “It cant be..”

The most amazing sight in Nature – the nesting of a “Computeras Chairus” 

David Attenborough eat yer heart out – you guys would rather see this than some crocodile – right?

    Hmmm, their early this year. This is a rare sight indeed. They usually don’t nest until full foliage has grown around the nest site to facilitate good cover for their rather bulky body mass.

    It’s a great Jay substitute, but on older specimens the tips can be broken and ragged.

    That is hilarious, I too have witnessed such a site, but it was in the desert..

    Perhaps (but I doubt it) this seat belongs to the guy who parked his car in the tree on the double-bend at the Kittoch Water (on the road between Carmunnock and Busby) a few years back…honest…a car in a tree – obviously it had flown up there and added a new meaning to off-roading. Least this chair makes a bit of a change from the ubiqitous plastic bags.
    Cheers

    This is obviously the female due to the rather drap plumage. I am surpirised the male wasn’t nearby collecting twigs for the nest site.

    Last year I threw a mouse pattern at one and it took me into my backing….
