Usually I say that birds are squabbling, or maybe getting feisty. These two were fighting with intent to do damage.
Ted and I had just gotten out of the car so missed whatever might have precipitated this set-to.
But they sure meant business and there was a lot of noise.
Until it was over.
They both walked away, apparently unscathed.

As long as it is not breeding season, I guess it’s usually the best fishing spot (from personal experience 😄).
😆 Fishing spot is the most likely reason this time of year, although I’ve not seen that cause such a viscous brawl before. Hmm, I’m picturing you in a fishing scuffle 😜.
A fishing rod can be as effective as a long bird’s beak ….. 😁
Maybe they’re arguing about a fish….
Probably so, Rudi, but it sure had a viciousness to it I hadn’t seen before, outside of breeding season.
