Noisy Grey Currawongs

Grey Currawong

Grey Currawongs are common and widespread in the area where I live in South Australia.  Until the last few years, however, they only occasionally visited our garden and the mallee scrub near our home. Their visits have become very regular of late and on a few occasions they have been feeding semi-independent young., often accompanied by raucous begging from the young.

They usually do not hang around too long and only pass through our 5 acre property in a few minutes. Over the last few hours today, however, their calling has been very persistent and loud. Not sure what all the fuss is about, but it has been going on few some hours. I can’t really work out why they are hanging around for so long.

Mind you, it is generally a pleasant sound but could get annoying if it went on all day.
