Peaceful doves in mortal combat
It was a very interesting scene. The first ever I have seen. Two Tekukur were bent on fighting each other to death. Was the reason terristorial, jealousy, or both? They were sparring by the electrical line next to the front garden. Both were in fierce attacking mode. Never giving up the fight. Every part of the body was used. Beak, feet, wings and sometimes all three. Attacks were made while resting on the cables and in mid-flight. There were dare devil approaches as well as cunning and well-thought moves by both parties. They remind me of Malaysian politicians, somewhat.....These pictures tell it all....
