Last week two local Koels got going about 8.30am squawking at each other (a 
male and a female, I think - a domestic dispute), when a few Noisy Miners from 
further down the hill  (western end of Deakin) flew up and entered the melée. 
Together they set up quite a racket, chasing each other in and out of our E. 
melliodora and Cedar Wattle, caterwauling all the time.  I got the strong 
impression the Noisy Miners did not like the Koels!
