Back in the 1960s whenever my stepfather would go to work in his garden 
or just out into his yard, an Eastern kingbird

would would suddenly appear & constantly dive at his head whether or not 
he was wearing a cap. That went on most all

summer. The bird never bothered anyone else. However, I  have seen E. 
kingbirds  showing aggressive behavior towards

adults once in a while in the last 10 yrs. or so with no /apparent /nest 
or young birds nearby. Here, male tree swallows dive

bomb anyone who gets near the birdbox after the eggs hatch but the 
bluebird males don't. Nature is interesting.
