The calls of these birds are remarkable in the range of sound produced and for its ability to carry over long distances. I start to hear these birds around my house in the autumn, but as spring comes they move away to higher ground - in this case The Grampians.
I like the shape of these birds, the shear size of the beak and that yellow eye.
The slight variation in the feathers suggest that this may be an old juvenile (if you see what I mean).
