Flying Lessons

OK, a pic of a tree, boring stuff. This is, however, not just any old tree , it's the gum tree in my neighbours back yard, and the top of it is home to a family of crows. If you look really closely in the center you will notice their nest. The crows were particularly noisy yesterday & I could hear them calling to each other from all directions. It was then that I realized that the babies were having flying lessons , & Mum & Dad were encouraging them to fly just that little further. At this stage the babies are only hopping from one branch to another, and when I took this pic, one baby had just hopped back onto the nest. It is good to see them back, they have nested in this same spot for the last few years.
