The New Tenant

It took quite a few attempts, but I finally managed to get a picture of the bird who is squatting on my air conditioner. I was obviously wrong about the bird being a mourning dove, even though I had seen one hanging out on there two days ago and had heard its distinctive call. It appears that the freeloading bird is an American Robin.

I still haven't been able to get close enough to get a decent picture of the bird. Whenever I take a step past the wall of my house, the bird takes off in what appears to be an attempt to lead me away from the nest. The picture to the left was the result of several attempts. I managed to take this by approaching from the neighbor's yard and shooting on full zoom.
