Cuckoo shrike fledgling
Cuckoo shrike fledgling

Isn't baby adorable? I just saw him for the first time, this morning.

 

Apparently, cuckoo shrikes were kept as pets in the Pilbara. It wouldn't be legal these days, but they're definitely confident, friendly birds. I like their song, too, even when it does get a bit loud.

Yesterday, I had coffee with a group of writers and came home with a headache! So much information, just sitting and chatting. Writing is a profession requiring constant learning -- or else, I have so much more than others to learn! It never ends :)
