Probably tired of being called "Common"! He looks ready to pounce. Nice shot.

Nice shot. He's saying: "Hey, why are you looking at me like that?"

Male Mute swan defending his territory in mating season.
This was taken from my kayak, just before I retreated  to safety.

I am not sure if this is the type of attitude that you are after, but this Sulphur Crested Cockatoo was certainly giving passers by a lot of attitude by swearing at them.
I am not a fan of birds in small cages, and this guy would normally have a much larger aviary to fly around in but he was being quarantined in a small cage after getting a treatment from the vet, and he was not happy about it.

Here is my favorite shot. Canon 7D, EF 70-300mm. Blue bellied roller.
Canon 6D, 5D2, 7Dv2.03, 50D, 40D, T1i, XTi...XT (& lenses, flahses), various powershots... You get the idea... I have a problem. :)

Wife shoots Nikon, D7000, D7100, (lenses and flashes)... we constantly tease each other that our cameras are better than each others!

Pretty stylish way of defending his territory ... folding of the wings almost looks like the martial arts salute (respectful bowing before the fight begins) ... nic pic.
