The Rivals

The Rivals
Two cock pheasants fighting for the favours of the hen birds. They sparred for about 7-8 minutes until a short snow shower briefly interrupted their rivalry, after which they went their separate ways.

Great images. I just wish they'd stop fighting and develop some road sense.

Thanks very much Jean. I have to agree with you, they are not the brightest birds in the flock where it comes to survival on and around roads!

Excellent work Doug, and great information. Unfortunately I have seen quite a few dead on the roads recently. There are a lot of them around here, due I expect to fewer hunts allowed in these Covid times. What with them and the toads on the roads, we have to be extra careful.

All the best,
Rosa.

Many thanks for the visit and kind comment Rosa. Quite a few of them live around this field in the hedgerows and woods. They come to our garden fence most mornings looking for and easy meal of grain, which I provide if the weather is bad as it has been recently.

Enjoy your day, Doug
