The Cape Sparrow, aka Captain Jack
Okay, the Cape Sparrow isn't really known as Captain Jack, but after Johnny Depp's portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean, perhaps it should be.

As many of our readers already know, Kerry-Anne and I recently moved into a "new" house in an old established area, where the trees are large and the birds are plentiful. Just how plentiful I did not realise - until today. We've been seeing large Guineafowl on front lawns, geese on chimneys, and earlier today I watched as several birds hopped from branch to branch just above and just out of reach of our cats, taunting them. It was delightful to watch. Birds can be so cruel. ;-)
