Author's notes

My attention was drawn to three birds flying and hopping through some shrubs and small trees, they were Grey Fantails. There was much flying in circles and two birds flying around, one in front of the other. Eventually, there were only two, so I am not sure if this was some form of mating with the losing bird departing or a male defending a female from a rival as indicated by some online reading I did.
