Bluebird protecting house sparrow nest from starling. (1 Viewer)


United States
I just thought I'd share because it impressed me, as the title says.
The Bluebirds have their nest about 20 yards from the house sparrow nest and the 2 couples have been getting along great. I just saw a stupid starling land on the nest box of the house sparrow, looking inside the hole and the bluebird came and attacked it and scared it away. I thought that was pretty neat since it wasn't even his nest, I guess neighbors looking out for each other.
