Currawong lunch

A flock of currawongs turns up most days to try to steal the dogs dry food when she's not around. I've taken to leaving them some on this under-used bird feeding tray - it will now be devoted to the currawongs, so they don't disturb the rosella and parrots at the other trays. Now I just need to find a way to keep the Indian mynas away...

Superb Blue Wren family

The pair of Blue Wrens who were coming to the veranda garden everyday last year appear to have been busy raising a family - there are now at least five young wrens. Mum and dad were with them at first but I haven't seen them lately - perhaps their short time in this life has ended. But they've left a new generation.
