Author's notes

One nest high up in large yellow box. The literature says that a pair of pied currawongs can kill about 40 broods of small birds to raise one brood of its own. Perhaps Canberrans should be discouraged berry fruits etc which they during the non-breeding season!

Currawongs are seen going to and fro from the nest daily by 2 neighbouring houses.!
