This evening I noticed about 6 magpies and as many currawongs all perched on the playground equipment and lower branches of adjacent trees at the end of my street.  They were chattering away, but no alarm calls, and remained in situ as I approached.  As I went right up to the playground equipment I spied a cat cowering under a low platform.  Firmly in the clutches of this cat’s paws was a live mouse. 

Why catch your own dinner if you can get the local cat to do it for you?  I didn’t have time to wait and see who finally ate the mouse.
