I had to replay YouTube to see who'd been eating the apple.

It was 'Mr Stick' - looking glossy and healthy! He's amazing!

Hope I'm not seeing another pierced bowerbird! :(

I was checking back (replay on Alcam) to see who was eating the apple when I saw this bowerbird:

It looks like a feather is poking out on its right side.

Then, when it turned a bit I saw this:

It was about 90 mins ago - I replayed in slow speed - it is not something behind it.

A currawong scared the budgies this morning! They all huddled in the covered part of the aviary.

It flew to a neighbouring tree and flapped around for a while, but the budgies weren't too concerned and came out of 'hiding'

It might have came in for a swim in the birdbath, Van. It’s hot today.

I was momentarily surprised to see a red head pop up on the cam when viewing the budgies! No, it wasn't another budgie, but a red-browed finch perching in front of the cam!

There were lovely clear, colourful views of the budgies today. So Al asked them to pose for a screenshot!

Unfortunately, as Al said - they turned their backs. :crazy:
