Rainbow Lorikeets and Eastern Rosellas frequently join mixed goups of large honeyeaters, butcherbirds and Magpie-larks in harassing perched Brown Goshawks and Collared Sparrwhawks in our backyard at Coutts Crossing NSW. South of Urunga, NSW, some years ago I witnessed a small flock of Glossy Black-Cockatoos interacting with a Peregrine Falcon. I can't immediately check the details but as far as I can recall the falcon was not the aggressor.
