Drama in the world of birds: Sandhill Crane being harassed by Red-winged Blackbirds


I think the blackbirds are defending their nests, eggs or fledglings, but you almost have to feel sorry for the Sandhill Crane. The crane ended up so frustrated that it charged a Canadian Goose out of what seemed sheer frustration right after I turned off the camera. The goose backed off and the crane finally settled down.

I see crows in our neighborhood harassing hawks all the time. They really gang up on the hawk!
