AN angry bird launches an aerial attack on a much larger rival.

The brazen Cape Crow pursued the Tawny Eagle and pecked at it.


The unlikely mid-flight fight was captured at Kgalagadi national park in South Africa.

Snapper Cassie de Bruin, 63, said: “The crow has been hunting at the waterhole and took off.

“They came flying straight towards me and I was lucky enough to get these shots.

Cassie added:"Early the morning I saw two Tawny Eagles hanging around the hole earlier, and adult and a juvenile.

“I always sit at the hole as it is also frequented by Bateleur Eagles and they are fun to photograph.

“The crows were there doing their own thing when all of a sudden the one crow took off.

“A few minutes later out of the corner of my eye the juvenile Tawny take off and started flying towards us with the crow chasing him.




“I fortunately had my camera ready because you never know what could come in and started shooting.

“I looked at the shots afterwards and realised I might have something good here.

“Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised to see the result.”
