Author's notes

flew in and had a wander around the yard, snacked on some Crab-apples that the Little Corellas had missed, had a drink then flew off. Stayed for about 10 minutes, first time we have seen one in the yard. One of our regular Magpies flew in to check it out and stared at it from a distance for quite some time wondering whether or not to play with it like it does with some of the other birds but decided not to. We usually see multiple flocks of them flying at dusk if we are looking at the right time.

Yeah, that's a fairly unusual visitor to a suburban yard, good that you were there to see it. I like how the Crested Pigeons are looking on.
