He kept it up - he was very agitated, of course, because we were right under the nest.
Katie finally had enough and jumped at the bird - see his tail feathers at the top of the photo:
This is the Western Kingbird who was causing all the havoc:
Watching us like a hawk (well, like a Kingbird I guess)!
And look what I found in the nest:
The poor father bird flew to the top of the tree and spread out his tail feathers:
Lots of birds guarding their nests this time of year. :)
The first night we were here at Sandia Casino, there was something going on down at the casino. All of a sudden I heard sirens, and I thought they were going by us on the Interstate. Later, when I looked down the hill at the casino, this is what I saw - they had all arrived through the roadway behind me I think, and they must have turned off their sirens. No way I would have missed all these vehicles coming in behind me with their sirens blasting:
There were fire trucks - red and white and yellow ones, a ladder truck, ambulances, fire rescue trucks, paramedic trucks, police cars, I'll bet there were a dozen or more emergency vehicles.
There was also a Channel 4 News Truck, and the Channel 13 News helicopter flying overhead.
The flashing lights were on for hours. Whatever it was, I never found out, but it must have been serious. I was glad we were up the hill away from it all.
On our way here driving through Santa Fe (where a tornado was expected, so we were getting out of town fast), I saw three motorcycle riders in the lane to my right, and one was packing. I've never seen this before:
See the gun on the red bike rider's left hip? I'm sure not messing with that group! Don't people who carry weapons on their body usually put them under their shirt or jacket?
We had some pretty sunsets here at Sandia:

That's it for this place. Movin' on down the road in the morning. If you are ever in Albuquerque, you can do blacktop parking at Sam's Club, Wal-Mart and Sandia Casino. Nice!
