Video: Fighting Moorhens

Watched these two fighting for about 5 minutes, and they’d probably been going for a further 5 minutes beforehand. I genuinely thought there would be a fatality.

Feel free to add your comments, especially on what the third bird is doing. I figure it’s either egging them on, or telling the fighters “come on, it’s not worth it, just leave it”

    That third bird certainly got a good view! I like to imagine she’s a female moorhen and those are two males fighting for her attention.
