Things are starting to wilt in Canberra. It’s going to be up around 40 for the next few days.
It was only around 30 degrees today, but this baby magpie is next to me on the back deck right now, beak open, looking hot.
What it doesn’t know is that tomorrow it’ll 36, and then 37 the day after!
I put as much (cold!) water out as I can, but some of the baby birds (especially the currawongs) like to play with the containers – dragging them around and knocking them over!
This is their first summer, so they don’t understand what to do.
I’m back in (much hotter!) Canberra. Here’s our first sunset of 2018.
