our resident Native Hens disappeared for a couple of weeks.
They've reappeared with 4 juniors.
Interesting the parents are very used to our presence and would allow me to get within 5 or so metres. Things haven't changed too much and juniors don't flee when I approach like the wild ones around the dams. They see me at 100 metres and are gone in a flash

transferring food
It's amazing how these little chickens appear to feel secure around their parents with my presence in full, close view.
I can talk to them :-P , and they just go about their business with no apparent ill ease.

The Little Wattlebirds are active at the moment, their raucous squawking is an unusual sound but not unpleasant.

Dennis your assessment is so true.
Love the photos and the bird.
The risen head feathers are nicely portrayed.
That top one is a ripper.
Beautiful.

they have tiny little wings and it looks comical when the young ones flex them.

No idea who ate it. Haven't seen any eagles about but probably a hawk of some sort. Well that's my guess
Trust it doesn't upset
