This was of interest to me.

I heard a Slim Dusty Song this morning.  Paraphrased:

When the currawongs come down from the mountains

It’s time to put the oil skin on

Its time to put the fire on etc


I notice on my Garden Bird Survey that in June and July were the largest numbers of Currawongs – 20 seen flying over my house in July.  This is apart from the stayers. 


Is this what others have found?
