It’s like The Birds around my place today. Currawongs everywhere, digging through our gutters for soft weeds to turn into nests! Gidget has been loving it – “it’s like cat TV but real life” I think sums up her thinking – except she got a bit freaked out when I took her outside (on a leash) with me while I hung out laundry, and chose to hide under a chair 😂 To be fair, those currawongs are tough as nails. They were outright landing on the washing line or just perching on my fence to stare daggers at me as I worked… if I were a cat I’d hide, too.
