Mostly bird photos from another scouting trip to Rottnest Island, planning out the next team building exercise for work.

  1. I said to Alicia Smith around that time "oh, a singing honeyeater - or as we like to call them 'murderous psycho death-birds'". She rightly corrected me to "murderous killer psycho death-birds". Which is a reasonable description of most Australian passerines, really.

  2. Takes a bit to beat magpies in the 'loony suicidal dive bomber' category. And as for being harassed by willy wagtails, bring back DDT I say.
    Although the wattle bird with a deep unreasoning hatred of hats that lived outside Police Headquarters in East Perth was amusing (only senior officers wear hats).

  3. I did not have their attitude towards people in mind - I was thinking of the way Australian birds are so savage to each other.

    The tiny singing honeyeater I saw last night that ripped a tail-feather off a crow (about three times the size) was a good example.
