But I don't think you own that heron, maybe the king does, but you? No.

At this time of year, beginning of Autumn, huge flocks of noisily squawking Corellas swoop into Melbourne's suburbs wherever Plane trees (Sycamores) are planted, to shred the seed pods, eat the tiny seeds, and leave the roads and pavements below covered in a dense and highly irritating matting of discarded fibrous material from their feast. It is known that these fibres are highly allergenic both as a skin irritant and also if inhaled, and it's a wonder that the Corellas are able to delicately and deftly remove the tiny nutritious seeds from the pods without harm. Even more surprising to me because these trees are European imports and Corellas are Australian natives.

Here are a few shots taken with a7iv and SEL200600G OSS with SEL14TC teleconverter.

5. And for context, here's one of our street in the aftermath of the feeding frenzy, taken 2 years ago at this same time.

This last one taken with a7iv and SEL70400G2 via LA-EA5.

Nice series Joe. I like the close up 'action shots' 3 and 4 best, but it's also nice to see them in the context of the street.

I am not that familiar with New World shrike species, but after little research, I would guess that is a loggerhead shrike (Lanius ludovicianus), since northern shrike (Lanius borealis) does not occur as far south as Houston.
