Recorded these photos awhile back at Sea View Mountain Retreat, near Turkey
Beach just south of Gladstone in QLD. 

The King Parrots (a pair) had control of the feeding plate and would drive
off any other King Parrots if they tried to feed,  all other King Parrots
had to wait their turn.  However, some Bar-shouldered doves turned up and
made a contest of it.  One Dove in particular very forcefully beat at the
King with his wing so much so I could hear it from 20 meters away. Got some
pics on Flickr if you are interested?
