There was a group of about  8 White-winged Choughs fossicking on the front nature strip of the house on the corner of Toutcher and Wilkins Streets in Mawson this afternoon around 4.30.

Someone wrote this week about a group of Choughs on an Ainslie St. Today about 1 p.m. I watched about 6 fly across from the Library & Tuggeranong Community Centre to the little area surrounded by buildings where students and others sit and often leave rubbish. As in not a garden area. The last of the group I noticed was careful to fly across at under a metre altitude specifically using the pedestrian crossing in front of a car. Actually it was the shortest route to the rest of its group but amusing anyway.
