Della: And look at this little fellow, snapped from our bedroom window yesterday morning….a satin bower-bird, munching the last of the Royal Gala apples with no less than 18 currawongs for company. Our bird book says that it is either a female or young male. I am not sure if the photo does justice to its amazing blue eyes! This is the second winter we have seen this bird on our back slope, but we couldn’t get a clear look at it before for identification. Good to know there won’t be any smelly, rotting apples left to attract wasps with all these birds working so hard…
