Duelling pheasants

I met these two yesterday.  Their feud was so fierce that they barely spared me a glance.  Tragically, the social pressure of the impatient white car in the distance prevented me from getting a picture of them furiously duelling in mid-air right in front of me, because I had to put the camera down and look for a layby to reverse into.    They broke it off just barely in time that the impatient white car failed to hit them, which shows that pheasants are daft, but not quite that daft.
