RE the Ibis Misbehaviour tale, I was once "robbed" by a semi-tame Pied
Butcherbird at Mount Carbine Roadhouse with a smarter strategy. I was
sitting with birding friends, having a cuppa and a sausage roll, enjoying
the antics of the birdies,  when one flew over and neatly dropped a 'plop'
in my tea-cup. I rushed into the cafe  to ask if I could have a refill,
since 'their' pet bird had Done It .... and ..... yes I got my tea refill,
but my half-eaten sausage roll had gone .....
My friends - being bird-lovers - looked on with amusement....
