A singing blackbird is seen, then a short fight between two male blackbirds, followed by a stubborn battle between two females. It is called to a halt by the intervention of a male. The losing female leaves the scene with serious injuries. In the sequel two males demonstrate the boundary of their territory, first on a fence and then by running along a lawn impressively side by side without a fight starting.
