    I was surprised to find a caterpillar feeding on an exotic from the Americas and southeastern Asia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spathiphyllum However, the Butterfly House site gave me an id and linked to the Peace Lily http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/sphi/splendens.html

    Platycercus eximius
    (species)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Chordata: Aves: Psittaciformes: Psittacidae: Platycercus: eximius
    Common Names: Parrots, Lorikeets, Rosellas, Eastern Rosella
    Michael Fox - Pollinator Link says

    Pale-headed Rosellas are typically very shy and retreat if other birds turn up at the birdbath. However this bird was having none of that and defended its place even though the Pied Butcherbird (Cracticus nigrogularis) was harassing by dive bombing. Very unusual and good to see.
