Circling a cat-tail ringed water-body to the sounds of aggrieved Red-wing Blackbirds. Whole families up in wings.

I know someone who was chased by a RWBB at the point of a bill. They are not fooling when it comes to the defense of their territory.

    Definitely a territorially agressive species. I have seen one chase a Red-tailed Hawk out of it’s domain! Like dogs, it ain’t the bird in the fight. It’s the fight in the bird.
