Angry bird

Every now and then, territorial birds get a look at themselves in a car mirror, and get very upset with the presence of an “intruder”.  I was amused to see a Pyrrhuloxia (desert Cardinal) fighting with its image by continually attacking the mirror image with its beak and feet.

The other guy just won’t give up…
