As soon as the first rain came, with it's accompanying drop of
temperatures, the male birds went in for territorial posturing,
chasing each other around in whole gangs and making one
heck of a ruckus.
They carried on as though it were spring not autumn.
Two of them in threatening poses in a cherry tree
quickly nipping down for a tasty insect snack
and back to the chase.
They were so intent on their purpose, they even darted around
in the grapevine next to the house.
It was really fun watching their antics.
