fight!

We always tend to see the nice in nature, but it isn't always nice at all. These little parrots were in a fight to the death I recon. Feathers were flying and the screaming was quite something. I had to literally stick the boot in and nudge around with my toe to break them up. Hopefully one of them will seek out new territory and that will be that for now.

Fighting or not, those are two gorgeous birds!

rainbow lorikeets are mind bendingly beautiful, which is why it was pretty upsetting to see them locked in mortal combat.

Maybe they had been hitting the over ripe berries, and it was a drunken brawl. I have seen them staggering around cursing sometimes.

like hockey players, they looked sort of relieved to have the ref intervene.
