Pleasantly alarming

I was awoken this morning in a very pleasant manner.

A Grey Currawong was calling in our garden.

Currawongs are widespread in our district without being common anywhere. Over the 20+ years we have lived here we would occasionally hear one calling in the distance, but they never visited our home garden.

This has changed dramatically in the last three to five years. Their visits have become quite frequent, usually once or twice a week, sometimes daily. A family of five, including three young, passed through the garden on several occasions last year.

As I said, a lovely way to be woken up. Could think of much more alarming methods.
