Sibling Rivalry

2 baby osprey arguing
When observing birds, it is not unusual to see conflict take place. It could be territorial or over food. In a nest, young birds such as these two osprey eyases are in conflict for who will dominate and get more food. I took this photo at Lake Sonoma, Sonoma County, California.
