Spotted Dove courtship Rivalry Terkukur Mating Part 2

My first time seeing so many (six) Spotted Dove congregate at the same spot
Courtship rivalry - 2 males (2 birds from right) fighting over a female (right with open wings). Three birds on the left just watching the action.
Two male fighting  while the female (left), watching who is the winner
one of the male tries to mount the female, but push away by his rival...
...and fighting continue...

...the looser flew away


"Do they not see the birds above them, spreading out their wings and folding them in? None upholds them except the Most Beneficent (Allah). Verily, He is the All-Seer of everything".
Surah Al-Mulk (67:19)
