For the first time ever I was able to watch one being active at night.
I kinda like them. Rather pretty and very mysterious when they are just standing
and not moving. I always feel watch by them and think they are busy plotting
something against me. lol

Lovely capture! \O

Not yet Flutts. I think our cat would discourage them :-?
They did nest just over the road behind the school cricket nets last year - here's one of them protecting the nest - a genuine Angry Bird!
