Above is an image of a Grackle and a Red-bellied Woodpecker fighting over who has rights to the birdseed in the birdfeeder. It reminds me of a story of two monks living in a monastery together for quite some time. Now in all their years together in monastery the monks have never fought among themselves. One day a psychologist visits the monastery and tells the two monks that it is not healthy that they never had a disagreement between them and that fighting is normal between two human beings. So they sit down together one day and decide that they will fight and argue between the two of them, but as they sit there, they cannot figure out how to start a fight. Finally, one of the monks tells his co-monk, "I have an idea on how to get started fighting," he picks up a loaf of bread and says "MINE!"
