So, one of the pairs of Superbs behaved differently today. They were occasionally touching beaks while feeding which is why I started to watch them but he was not feeding her. The she stopped and lay on the ground wings slightly out and occasionally moving up and down. He came over and got all fluffed up and walked back and forth close to her. It lasted a few minutes (a long time through the lens) then they went back to normal feeding with everyone else. Having seen other birds I expected to see them mating. Is that what the behavior indicates?
