It's understandable that he has had his feathers ruffled, Lillian, a rival is just not good at this time.

He's looking very alert, Lillian, and obviously keeping an eye out for the intruder on his patch Smile Very well captured, as always. Carol

Excellent sharp detail Lillian and a very good eye with the catchlight and detail. I might have just removed the light bit from under the perch.
Nice dof as well he must have been so close to the hide you could have stroked him.
Your best yet
