Chukars, Tien Shan Mountains

Kazakhstan Birdtours, leading a group for Birdfinders, watched this battle between two Chukars when they were descending from the foothills of the Tien Shan Mountains not far from Almaty. One bird was very aggressively chasing other and didn't pay any attention to us until we came close.
