I had to hold a small twig as my fingers where too big for the Hummers to perch on. There is just something about a wild critter that trust you not to do it harm.

Yup. Little flying jewels. Also have to find a way to post some pictures of the golden eagle I was able to work with.

What a mob AGman! Nice that they help you take out the trash.
What kind of bird? Fantail magpie, the Rhipidara albiscapa? A native or an import?
They resemble the magpies of north america but ours have longer tails and yellow beaks; but like the blue jay they are not very risk averse and thus become notorious camp robbers. th-3.jpeg

Plug it into a computer and just transfer them from phone to computer. PM me I can help.

Wow, interesting variety of butcherbird, the Wikipedia article was great. I liked the part about thwarting stooping with spiked helmets and phony eyes on back of the head. Audacious bird!
