Not having seen this bird for some months I was surprised to bump into it twice today in North Watson.

Early it was foraging in the street with a small group of Crested Pigeons. Later it was with some White-winged Choughs. Interestingly, it was giving the alarm call as a Magpie was swooping. It was very effective as the Choughs took cover in a tree and I was the only one swooped!

What an amazing survivor! Details and photos are on e-bird.
