A pair of clashing Ruddy Ducks in Howard Co., Maryland (3/3/2016). Richard notes "Both, I believe, were males in nonbreeding plumage and clearly did not like each other. Their intensity in battle reminded me of a serious dog fight. Over and over again they would go after each other fighting on the surface and under the water." Photo by Richard Orr. (MBP list)
