Hey, everyone and, I hope all is well in your neck of the woods, things are good here. I ended up going out and, splitting a few beasts, it was still hard, but a bit easier. So I think what ever came up when I needed to puke the other day was blocking my air ways and, needed to come up. Anyway now for the cool part. I suddenly heard a noise and, looked behind me, there were two birds fighting, not sure if a real fight or playing, but one had threw the other and, they kept hooking up throwing each other or hitting each other with their wings, when they noticed me they took the fight back up in the tree though, but I had never seen anything like that and unsure what kind they were, could have been smaller hawks, but their tails looked more brown and, body was like a darkish color, but they weren't the blue belly doves I often see and, not crows either.

It's not often you would get to see that. How interesting. The magpies here seem to have some really dingdong battles sometimes.

It was pretty cool to see and, I heard Magpies are aggressive.

Those birds may be mating, I believe. Birds have a different ritual for mating that seems like a fight. There are spotted doves that love to marry and do their mating in my back yard where they can have their privacy. They do body slams that seem like their fighting, but they are mating. I was so shook when I heard it the first time. I went to my window to see what the commotion was and it was these spotted doves mating in my backyard.

It's coming on Spring. That awesome air play could have been mating exercises.

@TRBRocks420 Yep it would be cool if you had taken pictures. Next time bring your smartphone with you so you would be ready to capture them.

I have some sparrows and other birds in my yard and I have seen many fights at the bird feeders. They are feisty creatures to say the least.

Could they be mating? Some birds mate in a violent way.

I guess they could have been, but it wasn't like any mating I had ever seen.

They could have been fighting over a female. Tis mating season in the northern hemisphere. :-)

I don't think I've ever seen two birds playing, let alone fighting. That had to be cool.
