Willet Aggression, Why Now?


Willets are common shorebirds that you see when you go to the beach. Here is Willet aggression, enhanced by the dramatic wing pattern. This big, bland shorebird becomes quite a different animal when the wings are lifted. Willets, unlike most of the arctic bound other shorebirds here in FL, breed mainly along coastal areas in the eastern half of the country and the upper West. It's no wonder they are becoming less tolerant of closeness now as breeding time is near.
