Hiya Island sweetie found a little clip on YT that might interest you.
I know you have a fondness for birds of prey.
Well this isn't exactly a bird of prey, its one of the Crow family. I think its an Ozzie Magpie. ( well it isn't one of ours anyways). :-D
Rather a cute clip, looks as if the bird as learnt the submissive gesture of the four legged animals. (rolling on its back to show that its no threat ) :-)
