LIVERPOOL: They may be small and dainty, but when it comes to their food, they certainly put up a good fight. This fiercely fought battle between two young starlings has been documented by a bird lover in a series of stunning images. With feathers flying, the two birds locked beaks as they started to fight it out over scraps of food on a bird feeder, in Merseyside, Liverpool. When twitcher and nature photographer Steve Ward put food out for his feathered friends he had no idea that it would encourage bird brawls.But he was on hand with his camera to capture the starlings as they battled for their share. Mr Ward said he achieved the beautiful pictures of the notoriously vicious birds with a Canon EOS-1D X, with a 1/5000 second exposure.–MO
