Purple-rumped Sunbirds - Yala, Sri Lanka

We came across a pair of female Purple-rumped Sunbirds (Leptocoma zeylonica) fighting on one of our rounds in Yala. The birds were on the middle of the road and were not bothered by the presence of a vehicle. They went at it for about 5 minutes before flying into the undergrowth. Definitely one of the more unusual sightings of the trip.
