We had a surprise visitor to the garden today. He wasn’t at all shy.
Isn’t it the best name? The Clinking Currawong is also known as a Black Currawong, or . It’s a large bird with a formidable beak and bright, clever yellow eyes.
He stared at me from his branch. I’m afraid I was very naughty and brought out a slice of bread for him.
He checked out the bread, but didn’t seem that hungry. More curious.
I was pretty happy with the video, but he had the last laugh on me. When I came back out ten minutes later, without my camera, he had invited two of his mates and they were happily hooning around the garden, investigating a rockery, using a hanging basket as a swing, calling out to each other and generally having a great time! I hope to see them back.
