Strangely aggressive feeding behavior between M&F Blackbirds

Rather powerful fight for apple between mother and father blackbird, maybe too many new mouths to feed?

That is interesting David.  Are the male & female a pair as far as you can tell?

Hi Ruby don't think so. We have an alpha male & 3 juvenile males but only 1 female this year. Never seen this behavior before or since. The norm is more like a clip I call high dive & will link this later morning as a new video. Thanks for looking david
