White Wing Choughs
A Peewee and some of the resident Apostle Birds
The Apostle Birds are so named because they get around in flocks of a dozen or more. Related to the crows, they are also smart and noisy and have a sense of humour. They squabble like a large italian family and will battle with the chickens, sheep and cows for food.

Grey Crowned Babblers and a juvenile Grey Butcherbird
The Babblers are a rare species, on the watch list for spotters. We have two flocks that come through on a regular basis, and they are a pleasure to have around. They have a bubbling babble call, and are active and curious. They dismantled a shaving mirror that had been left out and moved the two mirror pieces across the yard and out into the paddock one flip at a time. We discovered one in the bottom of a hole which was in the flip-path by following the strange bubble noise and "tic tic" sounds to find a babbler in the hole trying to flip the mirror back out.
