These must have been one hell of a “crow” given some have a 6 foot wing span!!!


I’m not so sure that attitudes have changed given some of the injuries I see on some Pied Currawongs that come in to my backyard. I am sure that someone in the local Kaleen area is using rabbit traps (illegal now) to try catching these birds that are often blamed for things that they don’t do.

Hmm, our attitudes towards native birds have changed somewhat over the last 60 years - for the better:
