Indian Rose-ringed Parakeets returned to find a Bengal Monitor Lizard had taken up residence in their nesting hole, in India's Keoladeo National Park.   They immediately set about trying to evict the squatter.   They bit the lizard's tail and hung on for a few seconds at a time, until it withdrew into the hole.   It was then harassed whenever it came out to bask.   The encounters went on for two days.
