Birds fight for food, over food, to defend their territory or to see off a rival for their breeding partner. Sometimes female also fight but occasionally. Mostly males. Some birds are very aggressive and among them are avocets.

This guy descended nicely, announced his territory to everybody who was around, noticed a White-face ibis nearby and immediately started to chase him.

The chase was long until the White-faced ibis escaped.

Then the mean avocet screamed at another avocet. Who knows what message he tried to deliver but it wasn’t a peaceful message.

Eventually, the avocet calmed down.
