Eastern Bluebird (female) defending the nest box. On two occasions, I observed such a contest between a pair of Bluebirds and a trio of male Tree Swallows. The swallows would repeatedly strafe the bluebirds, trying to drive them off and take control of the nestbox. One time the Swallows were victorious, the other time the Bluebirds retained possession.
