Currawongs singing in the Magnolia Tree

Clare Colins

Dorrigo, Australia

Artist's Description

Currawongs are also characterised by the hooked tips of their long, sharply pointed beaks. They are not as terrestrial as the Magpie and have shorter legs. They are omnivorous, foraging in foliage, on tree trunks and limbs, and on the ground, taking insects and larvae (often dug out from under the bark of trees), fruit, and the nestlings of other birds. They are distinguishable from magpies and crows by their comical flight style in amongst foliage, appearing to almost fall about from branch to branch as if they were inept flyers.
They are eating the Magnolia seeds which are bright orange and look very tasty…they are not! I tried one once and they are very bitter.
