With his food supply quickly disappearing, Mr. Robin is becoming much more aggressive in protecting his turf. Yesterday, a dreaded gang Starlings showed up and began stripping his tree of it's remaining berries. He chased them around the tree one at a time from branch to branch. It was exhausting just watching him. I put some more seed out for the Chickadee's and Cardinal's with hopes of distracting the Starlings a bit. It worked however, Mr. Robin was determined to run the Starling gang off no matter what they feeding on. He finally got some relief when Mr. Cardinal and a pair of Blue Jays showed up to assist in the banishment of this transient gang. I will keep you apprised of any new developments in this on-going battle for berries turf war.
