I share Geoffrey’s observation about feeding.

I also found their habit of leaf bathing interesting. I have seen them do it on two different mornings. They flap their wings and move through the dewy leaves of the tree until they are soaked, then go off to preen. One morning the local Eastern and Crimson Rosellas also joined in.
