A bit of a story with this one, we were visiting Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo, NSW, Australia as part of an 1800km road trip to Queensland from Victoria. It was a absolutely barmy 44 degrees and we went in for a second circuit of the zoo in our car with the sole intention of visiting the Koalas, Wallaby and Kangaroos. We had walked up the gantry to the Koalas who were sitting in a tree under a fine mist water sprinkler keeping cool and luckily for me, so were quite a few birds one of which was this very startled Currawong. The reason it was startled was because my neice had seen a rather small spider and let out a shreik.

Anyway I hope you enjoy the image.

A rather irate looking bird. Great detail throughout Dave.
