The Pied Currawong (Strepera graculina) is a large and vocal member of my local bird community. They are not always popular as they do feed (at least in part) on the nestlings of other birds. Given that they are closely related to Butcherbirds and Australian Magpies this is hardly a surprise.
What I most like about these pictures is that it give me the change to write : 'these are Currawongs in a Persimmon Tree' - which is the kind of sentence I would not have been expecting to write (or even understand) when I was growing up in Somerset!
These images are a little different to my normal ones, so I hope you like them.
We are back in lockdown here - and I am not happy with that situation. But, there you go.
