Fighting male Kingfishers

May 11th, 2013

These are images of two male kingfishers fighting. They started off by chasing each other around the nest area and initially there was no physical contact. After lots of face offs they made beak to beak contact in a tree and twisted and turned each other violently. Although these images are low quality due to being back light an opportunity like this is very rare. Images added 11th May.
