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.
Friday lunch in the backyard of my aunt’s house in Queanbeyan, NSW, just over the border from Canberra.
This is my view while working on my books today. Winter in Canberra is sunny, warm in the daylight hours, and just gorgeous.
Not to be confused with the Indian myna bird (officially recognised in Australia as a more damaging introduced species than the cane toad), these are native Australian noisy miner birds – and yes, they’re very loud!
A huge flock of them has taken up residence here recently. Here are a few of them raiding the leftover rice.
The Brindabellas (the mountain range that surrounds Canberra) seen from the back seat of the car this afternoon. Canberra is gorgeous, and all the Australians who constantly insult us for no reason are missing out on so much.
