At dusk on Tuesday, in a single tree beside Schulz's canal in Kalinga Park, the following birds were observed:
- scaly-breasted lorikeets - nesting - several family parties;
- Indian mynas - nesting - ?one or ?two groups;
- Australian/Sacred white ibis - roosting - at least three;
- little black cormorant - roosting - one or more;
- rainbow lorikeets - chasing around & through the tree;
- noisy miners - chasing/harassing around & through the tree.

Note that one of the scaly-breasted lorikeet nest-holes was in the same branch and within ten feet of one of the Indian myna nest-holes.

All this was observed in only ten or so minutes, before the light failed. More prolonged observation might produce more species in this interesting 'skyscraper' community.
