There was a lot of commotion in the overhanging gum tree this week. Upon closer inspection we saw there was an owl in the tree and the resident magpies didn’t like it. Then all the other birds came and joined the magpies in making lots of noise and flying at the owl. The owl held his ground. On Thursday the owl was gone. Hopefully he will come back next week. We would all much rather have a friendly owl in residence than feisty magpies!
