No apology necessary, I too get names wrong at times.

 

Great shots!

Had a short walk in the bush this morning, found this Grey Black Currawong preening just after its morning bath.

They sure do get into some funny positions.

I got the look again.

This is an Australian Bush Turkey 

We get them flying from roof to roof due to the dogs giving chase

With those white under-tail feathers, I reckon it’s a grey currawong

Thanks Mick,

I thought Black as there is no white on the wing?

@soundbyte

the white vent under the tail is characteristic of the Grey Currawong.

Had a trip to the eastern shore today, visited three sites.

 

Tasmanian Magpie, giving me the eye.

Taken on my iPhone at my mother in-laws home 

These birds come in to visit - because she leaves food for them 

 

Not sure of the bird name
