Sorry Geoffrey,

I meant to add these to the list earlier but got sidetracked - White-winged Chough and Apostlebird, both attacking car windows, mirrors and shiny hubcaps in several places around the eastern "inland".

Thanks for contributions.  I attach the list.  One thing I notice is that parrots and cockatoos, among our most abundant and inter-active species, are absent from the list.  They can be at least playfully aggressive to one another.  Perhaps, for some reason, they do not interpret a reflection as a rival.  We have a regular pair of cockatoos that not only watches us through the window but occasionally perches on the window ledge and taps on the glass to attract attention.
