Cartwheel Crash!

To settle territorial disputes, eagles indulge in a sort of a territorial battle called 'Cartwheeling' wherein the two conflicting birds lock talons with each other and swoop towards the ground. The bird that withdraws first from the battle, loses. This usually takes place when the nesting season approaches.may also be a part of the courting or mating ritual.
