Zoology / Birds of prey
English term or phrase: Crab or to crab and mobbing
When trained birds of prey fight against each other (falconry), either they are just sitting next to each other and they just squabble over something or they are flight and get into a fight. Does anyone know the correct term for this in Spanish?

A slightly different variation of this though maybe its the same in Spanish, could be mobbing which is when a bird or a group of birds (corvids are known for this) attack a bird of prey who enterds their territory. Would appreciate help with these terms as I have been unable to find them.

Thanks!

Último momento: parece que los aficionados a la cetrería se refieren a las aves de presas que inmovilizan y aprietan entre sus garras a los corderos recién nacidos, los elevan a gran altura y luego los sueltan, matándolos, como a "quebrantahuesos". ¿No será ése el término que estás buscando?
