I have just been watching some kookaburras and witnessed behaviour I have not 
seen before. I am curious to know if any one can explain it. Two of them 
appeared to be fighting with their beaks, and twice one of the birds was 
completely suspended by the beak with the other kookaburra holding it.  Is this 
normal for the species?
