18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Red-Winged Blackbird coming in hot on a Bald Eagle

I have learned that Red-Winged Blackbirds are very territorial and this photo shows one chasing a juvenile Bald Eagle away. It also shows that nature tells us that sometimes the little guy stands up to the big guy and wins. Sometimes, nature likes an underdog.
