I got the chance to try out the “Merlin Bird ID” app that Miraz mentioned yesterday(external link) when I took Gidget outside this morning. I thought that the bird squawking at us angrily was a wattlebird, and even with my dodgy silhouette picture the app confirmed my thinking: its best guess was “little wattlebird”! 😄 Cool stuff.
