Communication Wins Over Violence

As a postscript to my paragraph yesterday on the hummingbird conflicts in our back yard I have posted a video below on seagull communication. After witnessing hummingbirds warring in the gardenI was left wondering about how fighting is such a waste of  precious time and energy in the hummingbird community. This morning I watched this video about gull communication that ends with the statement that communication on territoriality is favored in evolution over conflict. Phew. Maybe we humans can learn from the movenpicks. (Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.)
