This agitated Red-Winged Blackbird was doing everything he could to catch my attention and draw it away from his nest in Mishawaka's (Indiana) Central Park on the St. Joseph River. When I turned around, he would fly in front of me to keep me looking at him
I didn't see the nest, but I got a good idea where it was when I walked over to a tree near the overlook by the dam. He made a couple of close swooshes past me to make sure I was focusing on him.
He was a darned good watchman.

Despite the fact that this Great Blue Heron seems to favor this Mishawaka, IN, park as a favorite fishing hole, he didn't seem to be having much luck the day we spent some time together. The spot is in Central Park at a small dam. You can see the splash from the dam in the background.

It didn't look like he was having much luck finding lunch. Maybe he was just trying to keep cool in the 90-degree heat.
