Looks like she had an itch she couldn't reach! Wonderful images. The crows are carrying on outside my window as I write. Noisy smart birds.thanks for sharing, you have really captured their "personalities"

It's called allopreening. Some bird species show this grooming between members of a mated pair. Since it's spring down under, the birds must be gearing up for the nesting season.
