A Brutal Fight Between Two Geese
|We first saw these two geese beside the water honking and struggling, their heads locked together.|
|They struggled into the water...|
|And continued fighting for around 15 minutes.|
After a huge struggle in the water, they moved through the woods, continuing the fight. Finally, one of them showed signs of giving up and hid his head under a log, but the stronger goose kept viciously pecking at the weaker one's neck. We thought he had died, but after the winner left, the loser seemed to be reviving. We have no idea if his injuries were fatal, and we left him standing beside the log.

These photos were taken at several parks in the Fairfax area, which we've gone to over the last several days when the weather was clear and sometimes warm. The temperatures have been variable, with occasional rainstorms and with temperatures from below 40º to over 80ºF.
