p.s. half a lifetime ago when I was in college (it seems a very, very long time ago) we were out doing some sampling in a marsh near campus; the area we were in was on the edge of a territory where yellow headed blackbirds overlap with red winged blackbirds. It was absolutely fascinating to watch them interact; it was crystallinely clear where the territories were. You could just about draw lines in the air because we could see the yellow heads flying and the red wings flying and when they'd overlap they'd scrimmage and then go back to their respective areas. Fascinating stuff! (Even when they decided they didn't like us out in our canoes and would swoop down on us!)
