Not-So Local Feathered Friend

Pied Currawong

These photos were taken last week at the girls' house down in Sydney. We came back from a play to find this cheeky Currawong stealing our fruit!

Everytime I see one of these I get the same bloody song in my head:

When the currawongs come down from the timber
It's a sign of rough weather, rain or snow.

Clearly I've had too many Australia All Over tapes and CDs in my childhood!

Haw! Yeah, they strike me as very cocksure and cheeky things, like the magpies or crows.
