    Default Telling off the Birds

    This is Banjo telling off the magpies and noisy miners that were swooping her.

    Sorry about the bad quality. The camera on my phone is a piece of junk.

    I'm still trying to get a picture of her actually being swooped, but I don't know if my better camera is even up to the job.

    Great pic, our Gordon hates noisy minors, though lately the minors have been alerting us to snakes.

    We have 2 or 3 gangs of miners in this spot. They always make me laugh. They are certainly very expressive birds. I always imagine that they are yelling at eachother at the top of their voices: "Dog! Everyone, there's a DOG! DOG! DOG!"

    I saw them chase the resident kookaburra the other day too. 4 of them and one of them was right on the kookaburra's back.

    There really are heaps of birds there on a 1 kilometer stretch. There are actually 3 magpie families living quite close to eachother, which is quite interesting.

    My dog's favourite birds to chase there are the swallows. These are not actually called swallows, but I can't remember what they are and they look and behave like swallows, flying very fast in big circles low to the ground. Excellent exercise for the dog and the birds hardly seem to take any notice of her at all.

    magpies are interesting....We also have three totally different families. They even have different colouring.And ours do not swoop at all. The ones out the back paddock have white backs, the ones at the front and side paddocks are mostly black on their backs. And they do not really interact, except when the Currawongs or a falcon comes in....they all work together to get rid of those.
    I do love observing our birds. i just wish our swallows/swifts did not shit on my car
