Laughing Kookaburra, and the Currawong




penny for your thoughts ..sitting on the back gate

down the hatch; that goes towards breakfast this morning



inviting?  Sacred Bamboo Nandina sp. 

aaah, so that's what happens to the berries!!  


and being very wary of my presence, Currawong decided to sit on the fence a moment before flying off

I have to say I have a bit of a soft spot for the currawongs, even if they do take a few eggs.
