Rusty is the most active of the three. When something is going on, it’s always Rusty that Romeo follows; never the other way round.
For instance, the other day, there were some goings on out in the back of the house, and that got Rusty’s attention.
Patches pays no mind to all Rusty’s shenanigans!
This time, Romeo couldn’t care less, either.
I found out what got Rusty all excited:
There is a pair of Common Morhens that appear every year in the beginning of the summer, and they usually make a nest for their little ones to be. So far, I haven’t seen them building a nest, so we’ll have to wait it out. They are easily recognized by their bright red stripe above the beak. The stripe runs up to the top of their head. These birds aren’t afraid of any other birds, no matter how big they may be. I’ve seen these aggressive small birds chase away the Great White Egret, the Limpkin and even the Great Blue Heron!
Yesterday, I happened to walk into the master bathroom, looking for something, and my two boys were sitting in the corner of the tub. I ran out to get my camera, hoping they will still be there.
They keep on getting my attention, for sure.
