So, following on from the food post yesterday
 here’s one I hope you enjoy
 seem to liked by all Australians
till it comes to nesting time and the swooping begins
Once thats over and done with the birds raise their young
and later get on with the job of teaching them
the ‘Birds Way of Life
The young have left the nest now and are flying round the neighbourhood
accompanied by Mum supposedly learning how to find things to eat
I have a family like that in my garden
but their little one tends to think that Mum should still be providing for it 
Poor Mum wanders around followed by her ‘baby’
who carrys on as though he’s starving
and won’t get another meal in his life
Watch what happens
Mum is digging around in the ground having a look see
and the young one comes tearing across the grass
and goes into a begging position almost straight away
I’ve noticed she’s starting to ignore him recently
and he is digging about himself
photos will enlarge if you click and then click again
Later that day on the grass
I did see her give into him
Some of us in the suburbs have been known to feed them
Heres a good article on the perils of doing so
To see more Critters from around the world
