Plus, today, since the temperature fell we've had three Channel-bills being
chased by a single male Koel -- the racket! -- while another Koel calls
from a tree. And sometimes tailing the chasing Koel, a magpie, or a miner.
It's a circus.
For the last few days, too, there've been two Drongos displaying
side-by-side in the MBayFig.
Terribly dry, but must change soon is the message, hopefully.
