Observation details

Incredible encounter with one aggressive male!!! Stopped to listen to singing warblers only to be approached by a clucking male. After a few minutes of him following me around, I sat down to try and photograph him only to have him hop up on my legs! I sat with the bird for about 20 minutes before he began to get aggressive, prompting me to leave him alone. At one point he proceeded to take a big dump, luckily right off of my knee, narrowly missing me. What an awesome bird encounter.
