At 3:30pm yesterday I was sitting in the CIT Bruce canteen enjoying the company but barely enduring the diluted Stockholm Tar they serve there and have the audacity to call coffee, when we noticed a Sulphur-crested Cockatoo poking its head into a hole in the limb of a big gumtree near a window. As we watched, the cockatoo began pumping its wings and jerking its body up and down as if it was having an altercation with something in the hollow.
A few seconds later, the cockatoo drew back and a Common Myna burst from the hollow and rocketed away. The cockatoo perched on a nearby branch and screeched continually. It was still squawking when we left ten minutes later.
