A female Cardinal defending her spot near our feeder from a Gray Catbird. I call it “This limb is Taken.”

This shot was late in the evening and I used a flash to capture the action. I set up some limbs near the feeder for the birds to land. When the Cardinal landed a Gray Catbird followed her. The Cardinal stood her ground until the Catbird left, then she went to the feeder.
