Remarks :In early morning group of common birds is foraging in our backyard. All of sudden two pair of Brahminy Starling starts fighting with each other. Out of these two pair again winners start fighting with each other. When one Brahminy Starling wins it went little away from the place and wait. The Brahminy Starling who loss came to the Brahminy Starling who win the battle, touch its bill like accepting the winner bird as superior. We observe same behavior in mammals – is that possible in birds? VP & PM
