To kick-start my bird series I would like to share images taken in my back yard of young New Holland Honeyeaters engaging in what seemed to me to be some kind of frenzied wrestling match that lasted only a couple of minutes.
Surprisingly none of them appeared harmed by the ordeal. I haven’t observed this happen previously or since so don’t know whether it is a common trait. If anyone can share some light on this I’d be very delighted to hear from you.
