Sibling Rivalry

Looks a bit like a lusty seductive dance, but in fact it's quite a fight between 2 siblings.



They went at it for a few rounds.



Both taking turns attacking.



Mom waited in the wings, as the battle continued...




...until the victor held up his prize!

Incredible photos! But I've come to always expect that of you!

Word Verification: tuffs. As in: The bird who has the most tuffs wins!

wonderful! I haven't commented in a while but I always look at your blog. Thanks for stopping by mine too! These picts are so great. Your camera stopped all that action to give us in depth look at the 'fight' How cool! The fox family is so adorable and I loved the Thrasher feeding it's baby. Always a thrill to come here Hannibal.
