Field of Fear

A Common Blue Roller hunting
in an abandoned lot in
downtown Courtenay.

I spotted this Common Blue Roller in almost the same location where I saw one back in the fall of 2009, suggesting that for this species there may be some strong site fidelity.

Aggressive and unpredictable, these large predatory carts should be approached with caution. Given that there are plenty of outside cats in the neighbourhood it was likely stalking cats in this field.

One more reason to keep your pets inside.
