A feisty little kingbird takes aim at a massive osprey, harassing the bird while it tries to enjoy the sunset from its nest.
The flycatcher, nesting nearby, is defending its territory against the larger bird - no matter how much bigger it is.
Swooping in low, the kingbird hovers over the osprey's nest at Heckscher State Park in Long Island, New York.
The osprey - not wanting to get involved - cowers down low before the onslaught which went on for nearly four hours.
