Hi All.
Rainbow Lorikeets are tough, will see off SC Cockatoos, Noisy Miners, even 
 But Crested Pigeons show no mercy toward the lorikeets when squabbling over 
They sidle up to the lorikeet, rapidly flap their wing three or four times,  
hitting  the lorikeet, and the lorikeet moves off..   otherwise the CP chases 
and pecks at the lorikeet who offers no resistance but gets out of the way.

The antics of young R Lorikeets now about are continuously entertaining , 
particularly when bathing together in a shallow bowl..

Lockdown has its compensations.
