User's notes

Some very angry Pied Currawongs alerted me to scan the trees and skies. What I thought was a pair of turtle doves flushed out turned out to be an immature and adult bird. The adult flew off hunted by a Pied Currawong and then the immature bird was left to the mercy of a large pack of a currawongs who sky bombed it and chased it all over the place. It was just too quick for any pics. Both seemed pretty small - size of a Nankeen?
