G'day all

In anticipation of spring beginning tomorrow a Blackbird was singing its heat 
out this afternoon in my back yard.  Lots of variation and some vague mimicry 
(you can almost understand why our ancestors wanted to introduce them).  What 
caught my attention was a not-bad attempt at a car alarm akin to the famous 
lyrebird version.  It only did this bit twice that I noticed but that's 
certainly what it sounded like to me.

Quite nice for a feral!
