This female Red-winged Blackbird didn't like the Great Egret getting too close to her nest!

Great interaction in flight image. I see this all the time with Osprey vs. Blackbird and Kingbird but it is hard to capture.

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to reply. This was my first time really capturing this behavior so I am happy the photo was well received!
