Jungle babblers fighting in twilight

Jungle babblers move in flocks and at times, they fight with each other for food or to retain territory. Such scenes are mostly seen in late afternoon when they start returning to nests. This image, named ‘duel’, shows the intensity of one such fight between two babblers to capture a bamboo perch.
