 Hi Netters,
            A friend of mine lives 14km south/west of Sydney and has
numerous Rainbow Lorikeets feeding on his native trees each day.
            One afternoon he noticed a different call in the flock and found
a Red-collared Lorikeet, with leg ring. It was chased by the Rainbows, but
persisted in staying.
            After two months it is now accepted by the group but the
surprising outcome is, it has changed its call to be the same as the
Rainbows and now cannot be recognised by call.
            Has anyone knowledge of this happening to this species?

All the Best
