Now that I am looking at the photo I can see where I should have moved the red squares around a little more…anyway we can learn from our mistakes…

I woke up yesterday morning to the council cutting down the jacaranda tree

…The kookaburra sat on the aerial all the while it was being cut down.

see the nest in the tree…the bloke cutting it down did leave that branch till last…
