Bottlebrush and Friarbirds!

You know summer is on the way when the noisy friarbirds reappear in the garden! They are such funny-looking birds, but their calls are so weird they’re cute. They’re constantly chatting to each other.

This Bird!

I know young birds are supposed to be scruffy, but this is ridiculous! This poor currawong turned up in my garden recently, and is getting picked on by the bigger, older birds.

It’s starting to look and feel (and smell!) like spring in Canberra.

Just a few currawongs…

With spring in the air in Canberra, we’re having a bit of a currawong invasion (that’s just a few of them!).

It’s deafening around here at the moment.
