G'day all

Saw an interesting interaction between a Scarlet Robin and a Jacky Winter
on Saturday (13/3).  Location - southern Grampians, Vic.  The male robin
just wouldn't tolerate the presence of the Jacky Winter and repeatedly
chased it away.  I watched for about 10 minutes and there would have been a
chase every minute or so.  The robin was really stroppy and I couldn't work
out what the Jacky Winter was doing to annoy it.

Anybody else seen such an interaction between these species?
