Right. No idea what happened? Oh dear!

That's striking, what is the bird please?

I am not the photographer so I could be wrong, but that looks to be a very wet male cardinal.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

Rare to my part of the world with maybe one being sited in Victoria per year, this bird has attracted a lot of attention in the past two weeks.

A silhouette of the aptly named 'Spangled Drongo' showing its distinctive tail.

Quite a vocal character I gather.
Makes for an interesting bush orchestra.
