A person told me today that he has a number of bluebird nestboxes on his
property.  One of the boxes was used by a chickadee.  He said the male
bluebird decapitated all the newly hatched chickadees.  He claims he saw the
bluebird going in and out of the box however was not around the day the
hatchlings were killed.  Has anyone ever heard of this kind of aggression in
a bluebird?
