I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Little faker

I have no idea what kind of bird this is. It was hanging around my ankles while I was taking pictures of boats and I almost -- almost! -- stepped on it.

And even though I swear my foot never actually made contact, the wily little thing started limping around and shrieking piteously, begging for some recompense for its awful injury. And when I said sorry and walked away it started hopping around normally, waiting for a more gullible mark.
