Claudia tells us that "the nenday parakeets were on the Lizard Path between the curtain ivy and the benches. The place was full of them and we moved at the same time. On the right side I see this nenday parakeet looking into the hole and stopped to watch it since it seemed funny, Then it tore some pieces of bark away. Other fellows got near, drove him away and also looked into the hole. I think they had just found it and were investigating."
Let's add these parakeets nest in holes

Caracara vs. coypu

Southern Caracara
15-06-17 © Nicolás Giorgio

I was looking at the Duck Pond, which is really very "busy" and saw how the caracaras worked as a team chasing nenday parakeets on the wing, though the effort was unsuccessful.
But it was much more interesting to observe a caracara on the ground walking very cautiously to get to a place. It was a pool of water inside the pond. In it a coypu moved easily in search for food. The caracara got nearer till the coypu realised how near the bird was, slid out of the water and began to drive the caracara away. I had never seen a coypu run and just as a comment it resembles a rabbit in the way it does, almost hopping. The caracara quickly flaps and flies away. They never came into contact but we can say the coypu threw out the caracara, which flew off.
I photographed the scene when the coypu leaves the water and attacks the caracara. But not the end of the story. Actions precipitated ...

A tireless fight between the tiger-heron and the snake. Stun or kill the snake is not an easy job for the tiger-heron. IOn this occasion the fight lasted 15 minutes. The snake defends by wriggling around the tiger-heron's neck to suffocate it. The tiger-heron even got rid of it to catch it again.

We heard the peppershrike's voice coming nearer and went for him. It was not easy to capture the bird. We heard him sing for quite a while. When I managed to find it a plane flew by very noisily. So I add a part of the video with its voice only.
