Blackbird Singing

I've been walking down the road this week. There are blackbirds all along the way, but none like this one, which flies out of the bushes and onto the lines over my head. It hops along above me as I move, singing and shrieking all the way. This goes on for 40 or 50 feet. I assume he's upset; perhaps I'm near a nest. On the other hand, I'm safely out on the asphalt, so sometimes I think he's just having fun.
