I always enjoy the call of the Currawong as their arrival in our area signals Autumn and the more pleasant cooler weather.
Last year I tried feeding them (they like sultanas) Unfortunately this proved too popular and large flocks started to arrive. At first, I thought this was quite amusing, but the novelty soon wore off and this year feeding them has been banned by "She who must be obeyed". baned
