    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.

    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.
