Last time I visited Melbourne (end of January 2007), I stayed with my brother 
on Warrigal Road, Surrey Hills. We were in the backyard when I observed a Grey 
Currawong fly in and pluck a mini tomato of the bush and fly off with it. 
Rather odd I thought.

As for this type of discussion about abundance and distribution of these birds 
and Song Thrushes and whatever else, I know I have said it before but wouldn't 
it be great if Melbourne had a Garden Bird Survey going, like we have had in 
Canberra since 1981, so that discussions like this were based on some 
consistent data.
