On this too-bright Canberra morning I reached for the camera to snap the activity at the neighbour’s bird feeder. This was through my bedroom window, actually, and at a larger distance than you might think from the snaps.  This relates to the matter of cockie/corella inter-action.  A pair of LC’s was easily holding its own in defence of the feeder, to be replaced by a single bird, which is quickly evicted by an SCC.  From this being a year-round kind of thing, involving apparently feeder-habituated birds, I infer that the dozen or so regular participants are residents, rather than transients.  You might also note the feeder, which according to the standard Canberra classification of the 5 basic feeder types is of the “Antique Urn” variety, and at the larger end of the size range.  My own feeder, rather less regularly replenished than the one next door, is of the “Plastic Hanging” type.
