First segment: DB/Y is inside the feeder and P/P is outside. A single Foudia rubra lands approx. 5 ft. from the feeder almost directly above it. At approx. :20, P/P flies to a branch that is intermediary between the feeder and the fody. P/P then flies up and very abruptly chases the fody before almost immediately returning to the feeder. P/P then lands on an exterior perch and hops about before finally entering the feeder. Third segment: Both birds are inside the feeder. P/P leaves the feeder and flies to a branch approx. 15 ft. away. She calls from this branch briefly before flying off. At approx. 1:37, the microphone is turned back to DB/Y who is still in feeder.
