Noisy friar birds
The noisy friar birds seem to be seasonal disappearing over winter. They aren't too attractive - black head with a bump on beak makes them look a bit like vultures, and they are very noisy. This one is raiding the egg shells I put out to dry prior to grinding them up to feed back to chickens. Not sure if it's after the membrane or the calcium, I guess they need calcium for their own eggs. You can also the box of the garden seat I bought myself as Christmas present, and the bay tree in front.
