Fight of the Common Mynas @ Pasir Ris Park

Quite an eventful day at Pasir Ris Park today, more elaboration later :)

Let's look at the plants first,

Suddenly, we heard loud cries and squabbling near one of the BBQ pits. And sure enough, a fight broke out among..... the Common Mynas (Acridotheres tristis)!

One was desperately trying to pin the other down, it was a tough fight but was super exciting for us, the human bystanders...
I know I shouldn't be cheering them on or taking sides, but I secretly wish the fight would go on... :P

Don't you ever dare step into my territory again, do you understand?!

And the park returned to its peaceful state once again...
