[Tweeters] Robins chasing crows

Oh yes, the robins are protecting their nests. I saw this a few weeks back, in trees behind my condo, when two robins raised a ruckus, and I spotted a crow investigating nearby branches, but the robins finally chased it off. Subsequently, a robin built her nest atop the light fixture on my upper deck, right next to my sliding glass door. At first a crow or two hung around, seeming to strategize a nest invasion. I believe I’ve persuaded them to go elsewhere. She is sitting on four eggs.
