This is Gate Willie.
It has a territory by the main gate at Paradise Road entrance at Western Treatment Plant.
His (?) job in the world is to give lectures to all those who would dare to open the gate and enter the Paradise Road area.
and a good job he does too.

You’ve really caught his attitude well David. Looks fantastic in Extra Large.

They may be bossy, little birds but I forgive them, as long as they keep up with the singing, which reminds me that I have a video clip of one, whose song is slightly different from the norm.
Your song is a really interesting one. Not sure why it would be singing at night this late in the season. Such are the ways of birds.
