Was down at one of the local dams today, three Sunday's in a row sitting and meditating in the back of the Captiva (will be a shame to sell it, but C'est la guerre).

Must have been quiet, as last two weeks, have had the wildlife come within 10 feet,and today'swasvideoworthy.

A crow, being badgerred by a Willy Wagtail...



Clearly not on the scale of that which brings most Aussies to their knees, but fun to watch.


If it's the truth....it can handle the pressure !!!

Had a call from the council last week...not to be worried by the sound of gunshots in the neighbourhood, they are shooting magpies. They annoy everything. I haven't woken to Quardle oodle ardle wardle doodle this week.

The wagtail is protecting her young.. A crow would make a meal of them. Crows in turn mob hawks, saw that the other day.. My local crow clan, aided by a flight of several dozen starlings coming in like a squadron fo fighters. grin2

Agreed. The wagtail probably has a nest nearby.

If I lived where those magpies were, I'd be carrying a tennis racket and giving them the smack-down without remorse.

Herons are pretty formidable predators...that beak isn't just for show.



Here is one a lot of males can relate to:

I think crows must be public enemy #1. The mockingbirds nesting in my neighbor's tree give them never-ending grief....and noise.
