What an amazing display of bravery! Wouldn't it be great if we all could act on what we strongly believe in this manner. God bless the little guy!

Great photograph!!! Too bad that the kingbird is so territorial. The red-tail eats mostly rodents and snakes, both of which are more likely to cause problems for small birds than it is.
