Female defending nesting territory

Observation details

I watch the female perch in a dead tree for a few minutes calling constantly, with a few flybys from the male. Eventually the male and female both started calling and then they copulated! Melvin flew off in Pertzsch not too far, then the female chased off a crow that came to close. Definitely a pair, and definitely defending a nesting site! Subspecies by range and intermediate overall darkness and tail bands.
