I have written before how the Spoonbill love to climb around on branches. The can’t help themselves and always want the highest spot.
Well sorry, it was occupied by a Cormorant.
Roseate Spoonbills may bite each other a little, but in general they don’t fight much. Cormorants, they do.
The Cormorant hissed right back at the Spoonbill in a clear warning.
Once he warned the pink bird he went about his business of scratching. The Spoonbill did not impress him at all.
Eventually the ‘tough guy’ climbed around in the other direction.
