In central Minnesota an American Robin (Turdus migratorius) defended a fruit-bearing crabapple tree successfully against up to 15 Cedar Waxwings (Bombycilla cedrorum) during the first 2 wks of April. Defense of the tree against larger groups was unsuccessful. Such defense of fruit by birds may be more common than the literature suggests. /// En estudio que se llevó a cabo durante las primeras dos semanas de abril de 1986 en Minnesota, se observó a un petirojo (Turdus migratorius) defender de especimenes de Bombycilla cedrorum las frutas de un árbol de Pyrus sp. El ave fué exitosa en defenzas contra grupos de B. cedrorum hasta de 15 individuos. Sin embargo, no pudo defender los recursos alimenticios de grupos mayores a 30 individuos.
