Some birds seem to take mobbing a bit too far. The Eaglets of Mud Lock, New York have fledged and I was there to watch their early flights. Every time they got in the air, the blackbirds would mob them - but they would stay clear of the adults.
Flying doesn't seem so fun anymore, does it?? Not for the Eagle at least... the Blackbird gets a free ride.
