Fun with Anis

At Lake Apopka this morning, we had this fun little interaction between the two Groove-billed Anis that have been seen there all week.

“Oh yeah, what you got there?”


“Uh…wait. I don’t think I like this…”
“What? This thing is GREAT!”           “…keep that thing away from me…”
The bird with the spider tried to give it to the other one several times, even chasing it a bit up the branch!
Oh, and Groove-billed Ani? Lifer!
