Here at Katoomba in the NSW Blue Mountains, the Pied Currawongs have
started forming their post-breeding flocks, with 17 in a tree in my garden
yesterday making a huge din.

Interestingly, this season I saw more dependent young Channel-billed
Cuckoos than dependent young currawongs. In my neighbourhood alone there
were at least 3 young Channel-bills compared to only one young Pied
Currawong that I saw. I couldn't help but feel sorry for one adult bird
last week who was kept busy feeding two huge cuckoo fledglings. Their
mournful begging calls have been a constant presence here this summer.
