I found an answer to my red winged blackbird question (previous post) after a bit of online sleuthing. Here's the answer, from the fine folks at Wild Birds Unlimited.

"Red-winged Blackbirds fiercely defend their territory during the breeding season. Over a quarter of the male's time is spent vigorously defending his territory from other males and predators. They do not hesitate to attack much larger animals, including people."

That's the prefect setup for a joke about defending my territory during mating season if there ever was one. However, my wife reads this blog.

I'll just let you write your own punchline.
