Triangular Fight for a Snake
Mangalajodi Bird Sanctuary in Odisha is a bird’s paradise with over 1.5 lakh migratory birds arriving during winter. It is on the northern edge of Chilka. During my photography tour in this area on a boat suddenly I noticed their battle. Actually, one Black-headed Ibis caught a snake, then one Juvenile Brahminy Kite was trying to snatch that snake. That surprisingly, a Great Egret came to assist the Ibis, like a friend. This fight between them lasted for 15 minutes. I have never seen such a good understanding between two species.
