Mika and Bird Staredown!!!

Mika caught my eye, standing motionless on a branch at least 30 feet up the birch tree.
As I came closer, a slight movement on the other side of the tree ...
Revealed the reason for Mika's intense stare.
A red headed sapsucker - oddly oblivious to the imminent danger!

(If I didn't know better, I would swear the bird was doing this deliberately - it stayed on the opposite side of the tree from Mika for nearly an hour!)

But the bird finally flew away, and Mika climbed back down the tree ... a maneuver that was almost as funny as watching Mika watch the bird!
