An anger of birds is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.

I woke to an anger of miners, crows, magpies and butcherbirds - going off outside my bedroom window this morning. There had be something interesting, so I wandered out to see what was going on.

I looked for an owl or goshawk in the trees - nothing. The crows flew off and the miners settled down, but the Grey Butcherbirds were moving around low in the "little forest". I moved cautiously to the back fence and found a very handsome carpet snake draped along a branch. It was about 2 metres long - its head wasn't particularly large, but probably big enough to eat a wide cross-section of wildlife.

I got some nice pix - thanks to the anger of birds.

Regards, Laurie.
