Within a minute of leaving my newly decorated 'tree' I had a visitor. Since I do not know the species yet, I will simply call him Mr Birdie. Or, it is like a big sparrow, so Mr Strong Sparrow could suffice Razz

WOW Ws, that's a definite You the man for you! I think you are spot on about this Wattlebird. It's lovely to be able to put a species name to it Very Happy

"It has a very distinctive call, a bit like an old wooden cuckoo-clock (it imitates the ticking of the clock and also the cuckoo sound), which sometimes can go on for hours at a time."

I will have to listen out for it, and that way, when I hear it, I will kinda know what you sound like, hey Grandfather

No sightings since yesterday morning, although perhaps the decorations will scare him off for a little while Razz

Thought that might be the right one, its great to find out the names of Birds you do'nt know.
Dont think I did'nt clock the Grandfather comment. You could be Soooorry, the clock is ticking on payback time, and the could soon swing this way

If I keep making wise cracks at you Grandfather, then I'm sure I will be deservedly clocked at some stage. Payback for me is merely a ticking time bomb
