Mokrin, Serbia is home to the so-called annual World Gander Fighting Championship.  I know.  I'm as surprised as you are.  These fellas in the picture above are Serbian geese herders, and the yearly February event attracts many gander owners like them, and their fighting pets. . . "the traditional — and nonviolent — . . . gander fighting is considered to be a part of folklore in northern Serbia. Unlike other forms of animal fighting, the gander do not get seriously injured, and usually lose just a few feathers."    news link 

Why not have each other's backs, instead of going beak to beak?

Principle in the type:  "Birds of a feather [should] stick together!"          unknown
