This is the Australian raven (a bigger bird than ravens overseas) who flew off with my food container on Sunday afternoon. A couple of hours later, the thing dropped out of the sky – on the other side of the house! I caught it having a drink (and flying around the back deck, carrying the container again!) today.
The feathers are spectacular. Almost blue in the sun.
A crimson rosella in our garden in Canberra this afternoon.
The rosellas are everywhere in Canberra during autumn.
Our sulphur-crested cockatoos are very cheeky, and spend a great deal of time stripping bark off all the trees and creating a huge mess!
This one came around the back this morning, to check out what the other bird species who live here were up to.
A raven is currently trying to steal my plastic container.
Here is our tiny butcherbird who turned up here as a little baby a couple of years ago. Steve/Stevie goes away for a few months a year, and then comes back and practically lives at our back door.
So very, very, VERY friendly and cute!
