Red Wattlebirds are highly aggressive and territorial birds – they are constantly on the lookout for intruders into their patch and will react quickly and ferociously towards other birds that ‘cross the line’. In recent days I’ve observed them chasing tiny Eastern Spinebills from the front garden and then at the weekend saw them taking on Sulphur-crested Cockatoos. The cockatoos were trying to perch and feed in the large Yellow Gums at the end of the street but constant harassment from the wattlebirds forced them to move on after repeated dive-bombing from the honeyeaters.
