I happened across this cute little one and surprisingly enough, it let me walk right up and take a bunch of pictures.
These little birds, and their western cousins, are big time bullies. They are absolutely fearless about confronting raptors that they feel might be a threat or are intruding on their territory. I’ve seen them go after everything from hawks to eagles. It is pretty amusing to watch but it might not be the brightest thing to provoke those big birds. 😉
