There’s still a few berries left on the ivy – a nutrient-dense food for the currawongs. It’s the only time they visit my yard.

Thanks for looking! Do have a good day.

These birds are still around, feasting on ivy berries. I love listening to them. You can listen on the ‘Birds in Backyards’ website. It says…

The main call is a loud “currawong”, which gives the bird its name. Other frequent sounds include deep croaks and a wolf whistle.

This year, the Currawongs are not shy about feeding on the ivy. They usually nick off as soon as I go outside. I got this one to pose by putting  some berries on the gate.

Do you have a favourite?

Thanks for looking.
