Avian Dust-up

Far from being quality shots, this series does capture the dramatic action I witnessed yesterday afternoon. These two Robins apparently had a territorial dispute.

      Pat, interesting series! They certainly get into it, don’t they! We had a couple of Goldfinches sparring in air yesterday! Fun to watch!

  14. Oh my! Wonderful action there. I hate to see birds fighting though.

  15. Lisa Gordon says:

    I saw the very same thing between two robins, yesterday morning while out walking.
    Oooooo, were they mad at one another!

  16. These are great. I love that you captured the motion of them and hope they both came out unscathed from their encounter with each other.

  17. haha! That’s cool! I assume they got it worked out.

  18. Marie says:

    Wow! Really fascinating to get to see this.

    You would think there would be worms for them all.

  20. Kerri says:

    These are super! I’ve been seeing a lot of this behavior lately!

  21. Carver says:

    Great shots of the feuding birds or perhaps a lovers dance.

  22. JM says:

    What a wonderful “pas de deux”! Lovely sequence.

    P.S. I couldn’t agree more with you regarding the octopus. I was glad the man didn’t catch any while I was there.

  23. Great series Pat….. You showed the robin moves…. Michelle
