Plain old nesting House Wrens are quite interesting this time of year...and it appears that parenting is a full-time job for both Mom and Dad...for a few days...for each set of hatched eggs.

EDIT (no snark intended): the only way my images of birds here in the midwest USA approach the colorfulness of the Aussie birds in the post immediately above...involves a fresh coat of paint;)

A Red Kite flashed overhead this afternoon and I got a shot and can see it has caught a rat (R5/RF100-400).
