ONE MINUTE’S WORTH OF BEAK TO BEAK AERIAL ACTION! Watch a pair of Tree Swallows run a female Brown-headed Cowbird away from their nest. The action is so fast and furious that I put some of it in slo-mo.
On our recent trip to Costa Rica, I filmed this Bare-throated Tiger Heron. Gorgeous though he is, he can look like a cross-eyed Keith Richards. And the poor fella looks like someone shoved a funnel, narrow end first, into his throat.
