They are extra stupid down here. Plenty get hit by cars doing 60km, I don't know if they are a bit to used to cars or what, but they seem to often leave their exit a little late! Good guess about the antenna, but not the same one. In Clifton Springs they are all huge so we can get reception from Melbourne. It is good for all birds who like to roost.

Have you noticed that little patch of coloured spots on the neck is getting brighter lately? Might be seasonal - then again it might be my imagination :) These have done really well in urban Australia and they're not even pushy smarties like the mynahs - in fact they seem quite slow and dumb... for example I think this one is on the same antenna as that kestrel was :)
