There are lots of birds in the hereabouts. A red-wattle bird lives in my garden and tries to monopolise my Grevilleas against the frequent depredations of little honeyeaters, blue-faced honeyeaters, rainbow lorikeets, and (in Spring) noisy friarbirds. Black cockatoos occasionally monster my Banksias. White ibis stalk my lawns in the early morning, but seem to avail naught against the army grubs. Magpies and pewees make sure that the dawns sound properly Australian. I see cattle egrets on the pastures, black ducks, wood ducks, waterhens and sometimes swans on the river (but I never see spoonbills here any more, perhaps because of the feral geese). Sometimes an osprey will fish the river, or a Brahminy kite fly over. We get white-breasted sea-eagles occasionally, and sometimes, for a rare treat, see a wedge-tailed eagle. During the bushfires I even had a satin bowerbird come to my dog’s foot-bath for water.
But my favourites? Tawny frogmouths:
