SX50.Purple Martin fight,,,,,,,,,,,

These fight's occur more between females than they do males. The females usually fight when a female who does not have a mate tries to oust and replace the female of an an established pair from a cavity. This fight in the pic's that follows was between two males who were fighting for a claimed cavity. One of the males had claimed 2 cavities and has been chasing off all comers for the last month until today when an tough old male decided he would put a stop to all that foolishness.

This fight went on and off for about an hour,they are now next door bud's.

I told you not to go in there!

Boy you are hard headed!

I'll slam you down on the porch again if you come back!

I told you I would,take That!

I leave to do a little shopping and come home to another fight,you're sleeping on the porch tonight>
