These are screenshots over the past few weeks, posted in 'chat'.

June 1 - Bruce is being squawked at by a maggie that walked in front of the cam to his door :)
Image

June 5 - Galahs warily circled mr maggie who wanted a drink

Image

Image

June 6 - Bruce is being serenaded by a magpie! It was a youngster (Baby?)

Image

June 12 - I saw the curra attack the kooka yesterday so was interested in seeing whether he'd be aggressive today. I think the kookas were prepared for him and stood their ground.

Image

June 13 - currawong appeared and grabbed some meat

More of this month's chatroom screenshots from 'Brucecam'

June 14 - 6 kookas were lined up - they outnumbered the ‘sentinel’ trashcans! :D
Image

The currawong is still getting in early and grabbing some meat!

Image

June 17 - Galahs came first this morning!

Image

Then the currawong made a few quick visits

Image

Maggie came too

Image

Can you spot the kooka?

Image

Image

June 18 - ‘Baby’ Maggie, currawong and lapwing (Mr Gimpy)

This Grey Butcherbird dropped in today, very briefly, to grab a piece of meat.

The male magpie ('Mr Pie') is becoming more aggressive. He was guarding the water dish, and making his presence known so the kookaburras wouldn't fly in and grab 'his' meat!

When the galahs and lorikeets arrived, a lorikeet appeared to challenge him. It raised its 'hackles', spread its wings and dared to put its back to the magpie! Below is the sequence of what happened then ...
