CommentTwo birds starting scrapping, really getting into it, feather pulling, kick boxing, somersaults, rolling, you name it they did it, although I didn't see any eye gouging. Not sure what the third one was up to, managed to get some feather pulling in as well, when he wasn't doing that he was barracking from the sidelines don't know if he was telling them to quit or egging them on. The main two ended up in the water rolling and thrashing around, the third one managed to stay dry, just standing back and squawking some more. Great to watch, it finished as quickly as it had started, I was happy to get a lot of shots, my settings would have been different had I known what was about to happen but where's the fun in that.
