The Bully

By Valerie1
This wee male Black Cap arrived just around Christmas and it's a real bully. The other birds (goldfinches, sparrows, etc) don't get a look in at the feeder when this fella's about. It will actually fly off the feeder to have a go at any other bird in it's vicinity. One poor Goldfinch learned the hard way to stay very clear of this Black Cap as the Black Cap had a go at the Goldfinch and came away with a beak full of feathers.

Hope you enjoy viewing. Thanks for C & C on my last upload. As usual any critique welcome.
