Fighting vs. mating Mon, Jun 28, 2010
A few weeks ago I saw some birds in a parking lot, and they were acting strange.  There was a lot of posturing and squawking, and then one of the birds was on top of one of the other birds, doing a bunch more posturing and squawking.  Other people were in the parking lot with me, and someone suggested we do something about this apparent fight, but I think we all collectively decided to let nature take its course.  After a few seconds, the avian madness ended, and the birds went on their way.  That's the thing with animals:  The only real difference between fighting and mating is that mating produces babies.  Otherwise, the mechanics and commotion are pretty much exactly the same. #nature
