Occasional Notes On The Protolanguage Of Trichoglossus haematodus
I recognise a buffet girl glare on the lorikeet on the bottom left. It certainly frightens me!
The bottom left is from a larger photograph that shows this courting male trying to convince a female that he has the aggressive qualities that make him an ideal partner in a community based on bullying. The mean, confident glare was accompanied by the rapid wing flap gesture that is used to threaten immanent attack to a rival.
Ah - so just like humans then!
