The Strawberry Thief

You may be familiar with a wallpaper designed by William Morris called The Strawberry Thief. Both Morris and hs designs are icons of the English 19th century Arts and Crafts Movement.

So segue 130 years and to another garden in another continent and here are my own strawberry thieves, not Morris’ thrushes, but a galumphing great Pied Currawong!

To add insult to injury, the young currawongs have taken to using the roof of the mesh chook run as a trampoline.

The chooks are not impressed!
