Amorous feral hogs and some nice birds

I recently witnessed some wild boar (Sus scrofa) behavior that I hadn't seen before. I wonder what they could be up to...

Sarah and I went to Fort Pickens with our friend Don Ware to try to see the third Green-tailed Towhee ever to be reported in Florida. After a couple hours of patient waiting, this striking little bird tentatively emerged from the brush.

Green-tailed Towhee (Pipilo chlorurus)

Along with the towhee, we enjoyed seeing some other birds in the area.

White-winged Dove (Zenaida asiatica)

Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)

That's the behavior you don't want to observe for Sus scrofa. Great, there goes the neighborhood.

Nice bird with the towhee.
