As we enter the 7th day of the heatwave here in SA, this morning was
beautifully cool (not for long though). No less than 80 Regent Parrots in
the roadside trees in front of our place were disturbed by a low-flying
Whistling Kite. The Collared Sparrowhawk nesting in our backyard (which
backs onto a 5 ha area of mallee) has 3 downy almost chook-sized chicks, and
on hot days one of the parent birds usually stands over them for hours, with
its wings spread and tail fanned, to provide some shade.
