Back off! Get your own birdbath!

It’s not always fun and games in the competetive world of backyard birdbaths, as these two red-winged blackbirds duke it out for supreme rights to this popular spot. These stately birds are notoriously bold for their size and can often be seen swooping after birds much larger than they are if they get too close for comfort, so maybe it isn’t surprising that they would spar over the local watering hole as well. –Submitted photo
