Competition is pretty much a given in our society. It doesn’t seem to matter if it’s a card game, football, horse racing or even work related; winning seems to be the principal goal. That shouldn’t really come as a surprise as that’s the way things are in nature. Yes, whether it’s survival of the fittest or passing on of the dominant genes, every creature is out to be a little better than the next. At least that’s how everything seemed to be playing out on this sunny, spring afternoon just prior to sunset. There were several male Yellow-headed Blackbirds serenading multiple females with their screeching pump handle call. But this guy seemed to strut his stuff the most and call out the loudest. No doubt about it he was trying to impress the ladies.
