This female apparently has just about had it with her monitors messing with her nest. As Bob Benson would say “That look belongs in a holster!”

Tina Mitchell and Zell Lundberg have contributed many excellent western cavity nester photos to my Nest and Egg ID series. The photos are online to help monitors with identification of nests, eggs and young.

You cannot begin to preserve any species of animal unless you preserve the habitat in which it dwells. Disturb or destroy that habitat and you will exterminate the species as surely as if you had shot it. So conservation means that you have to preserve forest and grassland, river and lake, even the sea itself. This is vital not only for the preservation of animal life generally, but for the future existence of man himself—a point that seems to escape many people.
