What Does a Ticked-off Bluebird Look Like?

What does a ticked off Bluebird look like?
 
Yesterday I was enjoying the breeze and the view of my backyard when the alarm calls were sounded from the Bluebirds. I looked and saw Dad on the nestbox, Mom on the tomato cage by the box, and an adult female on the fence behind the box. Mom and the intruder tangled for a few seconds when the intruder flew towards the box. Then both parents chased the female away. Mom settled down shortly after the incident but Dad stayed on alert for about 30 minutes displaying a tall slender, all business look as opposed to the relaxed look of the 3rd image which was about an hour later. The juveniles steered clear of the whole area for a while until Dad settled down and started to churdle again peacefully.
