    So, toward the end of the Apopka Wildlife Drive, Mike (Busted Knuckles) noticed two GBHs acting a bit odd on either side of the road:

    We weren't sure if this was a territorial dispute or some sort of mating ritual (I am not enough of a birder to know male/female GBHs).

    Sure enough, a little patience and the fight broke out:

    The fight ended on one side of the road with what I think was the adult GBH fleeing. The immature GBH gave chase, but this quickly ended with them both getting dunked and the immature GBH taking off:

    A lot of fun to watch, but as far as I am concerned, just more evidence---Birds are mean.



    Thanks for viewing--Brant

    Nice series and I agree ..... I've also witnessed many instances of "mean" behavior. I see birds chase each other away from my feeders rather frequently. Blue Jays are particularly aggressive and even Hummingbirds will guard a feeder and chase off others who attempt to feed.

    These are a couple more of my bald eagle photos from my trip to Rock Island, IL at the end of February.

    Joel's comment about hummingbirds and "mean" behavior stimulated me to recall I had a shot of just that, taken a few years ago. These were in Sedona, AZ.

    Really like this one of the Cardinal Brant.... color is spot on and the details are great. (I might try to remove the oof stick going vertical behind the bird)

    Thanks Joel. The things you do not notice, but then become apparent. I didn't really do a "patrol" of the edges, but you are right. I just tried to remove in LR, and did not really like the results. I may have to try photoshop, but, honestly, I barely know photoshop.

    I was just looking, and it looks like the links to flickr were broken for a number of my middle images. odd, but fixed.

    That was pretty darn cool, watching those two fight.
