Around Lunch time when I was walking the dogs, I saw this guy perched on top of a Lamp post.
I didn’t have my camera with me. I should know better by now, during migration time.
By the time I came back from the house with the camera, he was gone.

This afternoon I went for a walk around the compound with the dogs - with my camera, to look for this guy.
No luck, so I spent some time on the football field when I saw him sitting on top of the goal. Took two crappy shots until he flew off, spooked by the dogs.
Caught him a few more times on a Lamp post, closer to our apartment, until the dogs scared him into this tree (they were far away from him).

The hole time, while I actually got decently close to take this shot, he kept a close eye on the dogs.
They never even noticed him or came close. I wonder what his experience with dogs has been.
