    Some are just cute and fluffy, like baby Fairy Wren chicks.

    Perched in the grevillia about three metres from our back door.

    Hang on there, mate: you gotta watch 'em. Devious creatures, these Wrens. Very good with hacking and covert funds extraction.

    Very nice picture.

    Heat wave?

    Screen Shot 2017-01-31 at 4.56.07 PM.png Screen Shot 2017-01-31 at 4.56.40 PM.png

    We only call it a heat wave when the temp is over 40°C for more than four days.

    It's only the wimps in Sydney and Canberra complaining about the heat.

    ;)

    Actually it's one two headed wren, known to land on your nose and peck both eyes out at the same time....... Don't lull them into a false sence of security Jim ;)

    Those birdies will kill you...and before they kill you, they'll poop on your car and your watch...you may want to bust out the Raine Inc. "wide boy" protective band for your watch...

    Damn!

    You guys have got me scared now, I didn't realise how dangerous these little buggers can be.

    I guess I'll have to dig this out and use it for gardening from now on............

    Oh! Hang on! I can't, I handed it back in when I left EOD.

    It didn't include a watch so I couldn't see much sense in "losing" it.

    (Ex-MIL guys will know what I mean ;)).

    obviously not taken in Australia as the helmet doesn't have the anti-maggie attachment.

    Those wrens travel in pairs so as to attack your eyes.
