Fighting birds

 

 

Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, 2015. Fighting herons.

While working on a project with fishermen in Brazil, water birds became a common sight as they sit around the edges waiting for a bite while the fishermen clean out their catch. It seemed though that the Herons were quite territorial and rarely would tolerate another of their kind close by. When two met it would not be long before a fight would break out. This is a little sequence of the Heron's quarrel over territory and fish.
