REAL-LIFE ANGRY BIRD

Some might even say it’s the angriest bird.
Photographer’s description: Angry Birds are all the rage at the moment – but I have never seen one so furious as this tiny female Blue-grey Gnatcatcher, (Poliopitila caerulea). At around 6.5g (0.23oz) she thought nothing of challenging me to a fight when I stumbled into her territory in Turks and Caicos. After I snapped the picture I made a tactical retreat and live to fight another day.
