has changed very much over the past couple of days in NW Chapman and over into Rivett.
After being relatively currawong free for the winter there’s suddenly at least 10 very noisy birds flying around pretty aimlessly.  Most noticeable is that they have started before 6 am for the past 2 mornings, with also some calling heard during the night.
It’s not the whining call I associate with flocks milling around trees, but the call they more often give in flight.
Has there been similar behaviour in other suburbs?  Does anyone have a theory about why they might suddenly be behaving like this?
