Upon arrival to a feeding station next to a male DOWO already feeding on a suet block, a WBNH swayed back and forth in slow motion while also slightly displayed its wings. The DOWO did not move aside, so the WBNH moved to the seed trough and started feeding. Then a female DOWO arrived and landed next to the suet block. The WBNH started again to display its wings and tail for several minutes. It was not physically aggressive, all its motions were as if in slow motion. Eventually the male DOWO flew away, the female took over feeding at the suet. The WBNH flew away. It was quite amazing to see this. The WBNH tend to only visit the feeding station for a brief few seconds, enough to grab a seed. This event was several minutes long! To see the WBNH stay and feed for a while vs taking off quickly was quite a thrill to see!
