<span style="font-size:xx-small;">(Hey, they say have an effective title to get people to click on your thread.)</span><br><br>
While leaving for work this morning, I saw two small birds, chickadees(?), fighting on the ground. One had the other one pinned down, and was pecking at its head. I worried that the bird on the bottom would get its eyes pecked out. I tried to walk over to break it up, but they ended up rolling under a car, and were too busy fighting to be disturbed by me.<br><br>
I walked across the parking lot, and got into my vehicle. While leaving, I saw the birds out from under the car. I stopped, took my water bottle, got out, and threw water at the birds. That broke up the fight long enough for the bird on the bottom to fly off, chased by the bird that was attacking it. I watched it fly off into some trees, but I don't think it was caught as long as I could see.<br><br>
What the heck did I witness?

Birds can get pretty territorial, especially when there are young in a nest nearby, and it's that time of year. Hormones are high in the bird world right now. (Some people who live with parrots have to duck attacks for several months each spring - fortunately, none of my larger parrots get very hormonal.)

This. We have a big problem with crows attacking people in the city this time of year. They haven't started yet but I've been noticing them circling me more... I swear they hate me especially because I wear black <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">
