Hi all,
As a new COG member and with this being my first time I have written on the chat-line, I am bravely asking a question!
RE: Red wattle-birds
I think I read earlier this week on the chat-line, that red wattlebirds are back but I have had red wattlebird(s) around my house throughout winter.
Is this unusual?
Also, blackbirds depart for winter and return when Spring arrives, don't they?
When are they likley to return? I love their sound.
Enjoying the chat-line and learning lots,
