Rise Above

Currawong

Strepera sp.

Currawongs will frequent tourist camps like this one to scavenge for holiday scraps. After a heavy snowfall blanketed the ground, I staked out the area and the birds quickly gathered. A piece of old bread tossed high into the air enticed the more confident birds to spring up in chase.
