Were those Pigeons Courting or Fighting?

Were those Pigeons Courting or Fighting
Last Thursday when I was savoring my breakfast, I spotted two agitated pigeons on our neighbor's sunshade. Though it could be an aggressive attempt of courtship, to my ignorant eyes it resembled more like a fight over grains or territory, which is not so uncommon among domestic pigeons. If I could read their sexual characteristics correctly and differentiate a cock from a hen, definitely I would've been in a better position to comment. But sometimes ignorance is bliss right? We can simply imagine two hunky pigeons fighting over something and grab popcorns! That's what I told myself while taking the new lens out of my camera bag. The clash of pigeons lasted little more than three minutes and the 300mm telephoto end of my Tamron lens captured few okayish shots to help me hatch this brief photo story. I would highly appreciate if any pigeon breeder happen to drop on to my humble abode and use his expertise to clarify whether those pigeons were courting or fighting.

Once you pick a fight, by default you surrender the license to drive back home peacefully.

At this point, I was scared that the bully pigeon might take the intestine out of his opponent!

In a war do-or-dying is not the only option. You have to devise fresh strategies and prioritize survival.

Winning is nothing but a state of delusion. After all, how long does a winner's smile last? Congratulations anyway!
