Brushing up on some backyard bottlers

Black-faced Woodswallow (Artamus cinereus) on bottlebrush snatches spider (for nestlings occupying prime spot in fruiting palm frond) in my caravan park 'backyard'.

Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus haematodus) shows no interest in spiders, but plenty in backyard bottlebrush nectar.

Anything that interests Rainbows interests Scaly-breasted Lorikeet (Trichoglossus chlorolepidotus).

Likewise, Blue-faced Honeyeater (Entomyzon cyanotis), which often prefers to rise above the raucous antics of the lorikeets.
