Last week I heard a Pied Currawong calling near the casuarina plantation in 
Navigation Drive in Docklands, and just now one landed on the roof of the 
builidng opposite where I work.

I submitted a Birdline for last week's bird, but it was rejected on the grounds 
that PC sightings around the CBD are common now. Fair enough, especially as 
they've been regularly seen around the zoo for years now, but it was my first 
sighting of them in Docklands that I've had in the 6 years since we moved here.

I'm wondering if this is just part of a general spreading of their range, or a 
sign that the trees in Docklands, most of which are less than 10 years old, are 
maturing to the point that they are now attractive to them. Or possibly just 
that residents are now feeding them. Have others seen them in Docklands before?
