Sometimes when I'm stopped at a traffic light, I like to look up and watch the birds sitting on the electrical wires.
What on earth are they doing up there and what are they thinking?
I remember one time watching a big line up of starlings on a wire and one mourning dove waaaaaaay at the end. One starling got off the wire and flew to position himself right next to the dove. Right next to it. I saw the two of them sitting there side by side taking in the shared view and then the starling turned his head in profile and gave the dove a long look. He then turned his head and looked forward again, just like the dove. Then he turned his head and gave the dove another one of those looks in profile. Back to sharing the viewpoint looking forward. And then......another one of those looks in profile giving that dove a big, long staredown. He kept looking at that dove for a long time, longer than what could be called polite. It took a while, but that dove finally flew off and the starling then flew back to get his place in line with the rest of the starlings on the wire.
Little brat. Reminded me of one of Dick's cartoons which I think is pretty accurate for what goes on in their heads.
