Bird Behavior.

Bird Behavior.
June 11, 2005 04:52PM
Whilst walking to town this morning in front of Storeys(on South Rd) I noticed a male Blackbird surrounded by 10/12 Starlings
The Blackbird was feeding & the Starlings encroaching, as they neared the Blackbird, the bird attacked the Starlings & actually
grappled with them feet & beak to together
(rather like you see Coot do)I presume the Blackbird was defending a good feeding spot but I have never seen Blackbirds act so aggesivley.Perhaps other people have noticed this aggesive behavior by Blackbirds.
