Dear Alan and birding-aussers

I don't know if this is unusual or not but yesterday a Spangled Drongo turned up in the gum trees backing my back garden, and this morning a tremendous racket brought me out onto the back deck to watch it attacking a Kookaburra, calmly sitting on a 8m high branch. The Kooka dived to the ground under my mulberry tree, picked up a yellow leaf and presumably something alive hidden in the leaf, closely pursued by the Drongo and on the sidelines, a Red Wattlebird. Again the Kooka ignored this mad screaming black presence and flew off with it, again in close pursuit.

Alan - shouldn't Drongoes be further north this time of year?
