Close encounter with a Currawong.

This Currawong decided it would take a drink from our tiny little pond (full of Japanese Maple leaves at the moment) & was very close when I stepped out the front door (with my camera) & so I carefully tried to point the camera at it but in its caution it flew up into the Japanese Maple branches above to start with so I managed to get this peaking through the Hawaiian Wedding vine (Stephanotis floribunda) hanging down over our entrance with the bird just 3m away.

Then it decided I wasn't too much of a threat so flew back to the stone ramp (beside the tiny pond 2 metres away).

And now on a rock at the water's edge (2m away) with water dripping off the beak.
