Back in June, I posted about how Miss Rita got on the wrong side of some birds who were nesting nearby. Her very presence enraged one in particular and it swooped down repeatedly whenever Rita jumped onto the deck railing. Eventually Rita learned not to antagonize her feathered friends and for the most part stayed on the ground. Now with the fledglings having left the nest, Rita can once more safely return to her favorite spot. The above video from June captures the bird in its quest to uproot Rita from her perch.
