We discovered some green and blue glass pebbles in our Brisbane garden.
It seems the local Torresian Crows had stolen them from a neighbour, and
dropped them when they lost interest in them.

I placed them in our bird bath, and they disappeared in a day or two.
(Some, but not all, were recovered from the same spot in the garden.)
