Bickering Birds

a robin, not being chased by a hawk

Lately tensions have seemed to be running high among the birds. Often there are angry squabbling contests to get the most birdseed, & yesterday I heard loud chirping from high in a tree, & then a robin flew out, being closely chased & harassed by a crow. I’m not completely sure why the crow was so angry, but I assume that it has something to do with lots of snow & some pretty cold weather lately (25 ° F being a warm day).

  1. Hi Song of the Wolf, I agree that some of the birds and animals are acting very territorial about the food in yards due to the cold weather. I am seeing similar here where the day time temperatures this past week have hovered in the high 20’s to very low 30’s + occasional snow here and there (gone now). Have a wonderful Friday today and happy coming weekend!

  2. In your drawing you captured the attitude of a robin! I could tell at a glance who that was. The birds here seem to be getting along pretty well, except for the turkeys who will sometimes chase their competition away. Perhaps that’s because they have had more winter to deal with already and have become accustomed to it.
