HI. Everyone.... I have done a video for you all to see. My mum is feeding the Wild drongoe's just outside our back door. They come every year from up North QLD and they come down the QLD Coast to breed. When the winter has gone they go back up to North QLD again. All birds are clever these birds are the same ones that come every year. They take the food out of my mothers hand and they also take the food out of my hand as well. Ill have to get a video of me feeding them to. I thought id share this with you all on the form as you don't get these birds overseas. Please enjoy my video. I should of said wild spangled drongoes.

Hi, They look like what we call grackles, black birds, or crows. They fly in flocks land in a corn field and chow down. It can be so loud it sounds like a machine at times. We see them in great flocks during fall seeking food from cleared farm fields. Interesting to see your wild birds. Apollo is sitting on my shoulder singing to them. Does Indi respond to seeing them outside?

Blessings,

Hi, I was wondering if the bird called drongoes in Australia is what we call crow or grackle in US like, We call Budgeregars parakeets. If you know the botanical name I will look it up in Audubon guide for US birds. Some crows in US can be taught to talk.Ravens are like huge crows and can also talk.It must be amazing to have so many birds come to your back yard that we call exotic in US.

Blessings,

Thanks, Kat. Interesting bird. It is amazing how many rare species are in Australia. It has been a dream to visit Australia and New Zealand above any where else in the world because of the beauty and rare creatures and indigenous people. Oh well, next lifetime!!! To have them visit your back yard is outstanding.

Blessings,
