It’s easy to imagine words like those between these two (well, it’s easy for me to imagine…You, you’re on your own!) The Carolina Chickadee (In the right corner, wearing basic black & white) and the American Goldfinch (In the left corner, wearing bright yellow) are doing some smacktalking over the food tray.
It did not matter to either of them that there was a second feeder not 12 inches away with the same luncheon fare, they each wanted to dine alone – at this table. As it turned out, the referee (a Tufted Titmouse) stepped in to break up the fight. They each went to a nearby neutral tree, and neither of them got lunch.
It was very entertaining to watch these two carry on.
