There is a small thicket of bushes in urban green space near our house in
Canberra and under these bushes is a pile of Rosella (Eastern and Crimson)
and Noisy Miner feathers which are renewed from time to time. A few years
ago I saw a Sparrowhawk sitting on the ground under these bushes eating a
Noisy Miner, with the rest of NM flock hystericall mobbing in the branches
