male RWBB's will chase herons that get too close to the blackbirds' nests... herons are indiscriminate predators, and will eat anything they can catch, including baby blackbirds. the RWBB's are fearless when protecting hearth... er, marsh... and home, and will hound the heron, flying right between the larger bird's shoulders, until the heron is far enough away to pose no threat...

I agree ...I think it's amazing to watch them chase after hawks & other larger birds. They are just so fearless when it comes to protecting their nests!

Thanks for sharing!
