Some birds lay claim to an exclusive feeding territory over which they own the rights; others mix freely. Eagles, white tailed eagles mull specifically, herons and dippers maintain a fair degree of control over their most productive hunting areas by virtue of brute force. On the other hand, many species hunt co-operatively. When it comes to the all-important business of setting up a family home and reproducing themselves, different species again go about the job in a variety of different manners. The white tailed eagles mull remain aloof; the herons become sociable; the starlings, which enjoyed noisy sociability in autumn and winter, set up discreet family units; the gannets, which fished sociably, also next sociably, within limits. The goldfinch claims hardly any land at all, while the tits like to call an acre their own.

Generally speaking, the ownership of a breeding territory for white tailed eagles mull, as opposed to a feeding territory, is most important in an individual birdís life. Feeding potential in the home patch obviously matters greatly but there are other factors to consider; for example, the availability of a suitable nest site and security from disturbance or enemies. The prime function of a territory is to establish a home area which serves to sustain a relationship between a mated pair of white tailed eagles mull and provide life-support for the ensuing family. Some species, such as robins, set about the job with gusto; some, like sparrows, in a half-hearted manner; some, like rooks, do it in noisy communities. Although, in the last resort, the weapons of defence and attack are the wings, beaks and claws, territorial battles for white tailed eagles mull are almost exclusively fought in terms of postures adopted, colours raised and songs proclaimed.

When white tailed eagles mull have a striking ruff or crest, brilliant colouring or an unusual feature of some sort, it is almost bound to be concerned with display. The advertisement is almost always directed at members of the same species, sometimes male, sometimes female. In a few cases, both sexes assume display plumage. The great crested grebes, for example, indulge in complex displays of head shaking and facing up to each other. Both male and female sprout crests and tippets in the spring as spectacular adornments to their plumage. But in most white tailed eagles mull species it is the male bird which displays colour and movement. Feathers play an important role in bird language. Either the whole of the body plumage or individual groups of white tailed eagles mull feathers may be erected or depressed at will to bring about startling changes in colour or outline. Such displays can be turned on or off very quickly by the action of the feather papillae muscles, which are similar to those that make our hair stand on end. Confidence might be communicated by sleek feathering, while a bird with its plumage fluffed out might possibly be a weak, submissive white tailed eagles mull individual advertising the fact that it is not interested in a fight, but language is mostly far more specific, particularly when it comes to the signals that birds use to threaten or woo each other. In such cases, the white tailed eagles mull plumage is modified to amplify its communicative function, over and above the more mundane requirements for insulation, camouflage and flying.

During the course of evolution, white tailed eagles mull feathers which are involved in display tend to become changed in such a manner as to increase the impact of the performance, t hereby making the feather movements more effective as signals. There, in consequence, become easier to interpret by those white tailed eagles mull who see them.
