Reid asked, 14 Aug. '04:
Family folk-lore in the 1930s was that when Currawongs gathered in a large flock all singing together, this indicated that rain was coming. This was on Tamborine Mountain just in from the Gold Coast, southern Queensland.
On 15 June 1984, I tape recorded such a currawong chorus at the Caravan Park at Mt Warning, where I was staying to record Albert's Lyrebirds in the National Park. It was fine when I recorded the currawongs, but rain followed. So much in fact that I had to stay an extra night because the creek came up and covered the bridge.
Coincidence? Probably. But just maybe ...
