More Mesa, Santa Barbara, CA (Google, OSM)

Description

"On very rare occasions, defensive action can result in physical contact between two kites. The wing of an opponent is held in the beak of the territorial kite, and the entwined birds unable to fly, tumble downward. After falling about half the distance to the earth, they separate and fly up to about one hundred and fifty feet off the ground to start again. A descent to almost ground level has also been observed."

Interaction as described above - the pair fell almost to ground level.
