    Yesterday I posted on the aggressive attack by a mob of Kookaburras on one of their own kind.
    Here is a shot of the victim at the end of about round 4.
    The next round started with a full on flying head butt that knocked this fellow off the perch and it was on again.

    Great story you are telling here.
    Much better POV with this image. Do you have a sliver more room on the left?
    You should post in story sequences as well,
    Gail

    Such an interesting sequence of shots. I would have had a hard time not stepping on this guy's behalf! I hope he weathered the abuse.
