A Magpie pair began to visit in late 2013 bringing their juveniles with them. Sadly, the original Mrs Magpie disappeared in early August 2016. Mr Magpie has since partnered with Mrs Magpie II and continues to visit regularly.
Grey Butcherbird Family
A pair of Grey Butcherbirds have been visiting daily since 2014 and they bring their babies with them. Even the juveniles learn to trust me but always remain vigilantly cautious. The chicks born in Spring 2016 I named Beaky (because she broke the hook on her beak early in the piece which then slowly regrew). Her sibling I named Cheeky for his outgoing personality.
Torresian Crow Family
A Torresian Pair took up residence in my backyard in 2014 and have had 2 successful breeding seasons. Sometime towards the end of Summer 2017, I noticed Mrs Torresian Crow looked smaller and is more nervous. It appears that she is NOT the original partner and they are yet to begin breeding.
