Sacred KIngfisher, Red-rumped Parrot: Hey! That's Mine!!

Sacred Kingfisher, Todiramphrus sanctus, Red-rumped Parrot, Purpureicephalus spurius

+================+

Suitable nesting holes are in short supply.

This Sacred Kingfisher has designs on moving in, but the current owner, a very angry female Red-rumped Parrot has no intention of giving up her home. Outside of the frame, her mate is also ready to join the fray.

The Kingfisher relented, but I suspect this is not the end of neighbourhood housing discussions.
