White-breasted Nuthatches can be very defensive of their food source.
This little fellow took exception to a tufted titmouse who repeatedly tried to land on the natural feeder directly below the it's perch.
I enjoyed watching how the nuthatch flared it's wings, tripling its profile, while swiveled to face the intruder.
The belligerent little nuthatch was successful, for after just a few rebuffs, the titmouse gave up retreating to the woodland.
