We have a pergola across the back of the yard where we hang flower baskets. This year one of the baskets has been adopted by a Bushtit bird. At first we thought it was building a nest but that does not seem to be the case. It just likes to live in it.

If I come near the basket to water or even mow the grass the bird flies out and then swops at me going Tit Tit Tit Tit.

It keeps this up until I move off, despite my telling her, (many times) that I built the pergola and bought the basket so I have every right to be there. No mercy from the bird. Unusual because these birds are normally in flocks but this one is solo.
