White winged Chough nest

The White Winged Chough builds these amazing mud nests. From a distance these birds look like crows, until they take off in flight. They have very noticeable white flashes on their wings.

They also have amazing red eyes,

And their long curved beaks look mean.

They live together in groups. We found quite a lot of these nesting along a stretch of bush track.

One day I will try to take photos of them when they leave their nests!
