Default Pelicans behaving badly

It started with one pelican sitting on a perch in the Swan River, then in flew a second one and they had a bit of a disagreement.

There could only be one winner and to the victor goes the perch.

G'day mate

Goodness - what an extraordinary set of images

The 'fight' seems a bit like the classroom bully trying to force the other kid to hand over his lollies ~ 'cept I guess there is always more than meets the eye

Well done
Phil

Thanks Phil,

I've not seen anything like this before, just lucky to be there at the right time.

I was about to get back on the bike when I saw the second one flying in and tried for an in flight shot, after it landed I was putting the camera in my saddle bag when they started grunting at each other, if it hadn't been for the noise I would have cycled off without seeing this.

Mike

Interesting series! It reminds me of MMA fighting.
