Description

a memorable moment while photographing tree swallows on nest boxes in a local audobon sanctuary. found an egret feather was found and it was instant chaos as just about the entire colony wanted it! As soon as one would claim it and get it to a box, another would steal it. Often 2 or more birds would battle over it in mid air. The mob of sparrows managed to place this feather in at least 6 different boxes before the prize was finally claimed by one lucky pair.
