Subject: [VTBIRD] Baltimore Oriole show
I was birding this morning here in Cornwall and was treated to an
amazing show by two male Baltimore Orioles. They were engaged in what I
assume was a spectacular territorial boundary dispute, singing at each
other from adjacent branches in the same tree, as they hopped from
branch to branch down opposite sides of the trunk. It went on and on for
about a minute, until they got inches apart, still singing at each
other, beaks practically touching. It finished up with an aerial tussle,
after which the bird that was consistently in the lower position flew
off to another nearby tree. The birds were still singing at each other
when I left.

Whew!
