    Comments: Today I witnessed a bizarre encounter between the imm RSHA that's been onsite for a few weeks and a newly-arrived imm RTHA. I first heard what sounded like loud MYWA chips given in rapid succession, then looked behind some vegetation expecting to see a warbler, but was shocked to see both hawks tangled up in an aggressive dispute in the water! They repeatedly whacked each other with their wings while locking talons, pausing occasionally for intense staring contests (while still locking talons). Eventually the RTHA flew off, leaving the RSHA frazzled, shivering, and wet on the shore of the wetland. Later I saw both hawks flying around in different areas, so both survived.
