My sons and I were eating lunch in a park here in Sydney on Tuesday, and
observed a noisy miner get to close to a magpie. The magpie made a loud
clicking noise at the miner, apparently warning it away. 


This is our first time to observe this. Is it a common magpie behaviour? 


Is it a warning behaviour?


Is it common to other species?


Cheers on the Great Birthday!
