I love Bruce's 'new' cam and its clarity, with better internet! I took a few screen caps last week, then forgot to post them. We are seeing such variety these days - thanks Bruce!

I hadn't seen the maggies for a while, but I saw one there 4 days ago, on Feb 24:

The Lorikeets are regulars now - hopping around like colourful grasshoppers! There were a lot of them 2 days ago:

The magpies are nesting nearby and very aggressively defending 'their' territory!

This afternoon there were very many loikeets and galahs grazing (and sqabbling) when the magpie roared in, sending most flying - he wanted the water dish!

Mr. magpie was not too happy when a kooka dropped in and grabbed food Bruce had put out for the maggies!

The kooka was chased off!

Two of the Magpie youngsters appeared on cam this morning - Bruce said he saw all three, but one didn't put in a cam appearance!

They are learning to feed themselves!
