User's notes

4 males plus one female, all working together to scare off a pair of tawny frogmouths (unsuccessfully). After a few minutes three of the males gave up and began feeding on the eucs nearby. The male and the female remaining continued to harrass the frogmouths until after I left, which included plucking strips of bark and dropping it on the birds below them
