So one could say Paul it was only a minor Miner Mynah attack eh?

Hi Birding-aussers, interested to read Colin R's comments, Blue-faces really are aggresive sods! However in Mowbray Park, East Brisbane, Noisy Miners do the same job, I often see a small group get stuck into individual Mynahs & they seem to leave no feather unturned!! What we really need of course is for the local Magpie & Pied Butcherbird populations to finish the job off.
Around Brisbane, I have often watched Magpies as a pair, seek out Common Starling nestlings (eggs?) closely followed by a protesting pair(s) of Starlings in suburban roofs.
In saying that though, I once rescued an adult Pied Butcherbird from a mob of Noisy Miners in the above mentioned suburban park, it really was quite dazed and took some time to recover.
Cheers - Paul W.
