    Equipment Note

DB/Y is inside the feeder. P/P arrives and lands on a branch of a medium sized tree. It rubs its bill on the branch and then flies towards a Foudia rubra which it chases out of view. The bird returns after a short time and perches in another tree on the other side of the feeder. The bird flies to the feeder and lands on an exterior perch and at approx. 3:30, it enters the feeder. the two birds move about inside the feeder, preen themselves, and sharpen their bills.
