No birds

Snapped on one of my walkabouts this week.


The nice thing about these fellows is that they don't swoop on cyclists as they ride past. I am getting all too used to the "clack" that a swooping magpie makes as its beak collides with the back of my helmet.

Used to get dived by the maggies in my street but now I've somehow made friends with them in the backyard they leave us alone out front. Turned a few rocks over and they got a good feed, now they fly in to greet me. "What you got for us today?" Dumb though. Two had each end of a long piece of nesting fibre, 'Mine, mine, mine' squawking for 5 mins till one got tired and gave up.

Sulphur crested cockies otoh, are The Enemy.
