I'm doing a presentation on behalf of BirdLife Melbourne to a local parklands 
group later in the year and am currently working on it, so that I can get 
appropriate photos to use hopefully (which can take time.)  I'm using birds 
I've seen when I've visited the park and am up to Noisy Miners.  I'm mentioning 
that both they can be quite pugnacious, driving other birds ranging from 
pardalotes to cormorants in size, out of their territories.

Sometimes  it seems they they work in groups too.   Does anyone have any 
thoughts about whether this is co-operative or just every bird for itself?

Thanks for any thoughts in advance.
