Well, I encountered one in real life that reminded me of those fabulously clever caricatures. Bob and I went for a walk one day and I spotted a little blue head sticking out of a birdhouse.
As the little blue head spotted me, it became visibly wary.
I only had a basic point-and-shoot camera with me, so I had to get closer to take a close-up photo of it. This tree swallow was very protective of its nest. As I inched closer, it became VERY annoyed.
It gave me the evil eye (as if it were hoping that it could intimidate me). Its dark angry stare only made it look even more striking as its blue feathers glistened under the bright sunshine.
As I didn't go away, it leaned out to examine me and threw rapid chirps my way, clearly highly agitated at this point.
It grew quite angry as I got even closer; a little frightened, too, I think, as it retreated into its nest. Still, it stood guard over its nest, blocking the entire entrance. It appeared to be ready to dive bomb the giant that kept getting dangerously close.
Doesn't it look like it could be part of the Angry Birds gang?
