Always quirky, sometimes sweet speculative fiction

Curlew At My Front Door

By now most of you should know I love bush stone-curlews, and today when I got home after picking the kids up from school I was ready to just unbuckle them and head on into the house, but Harley cried out, “Look, ducky!”

So I looked and it wasn’t a duck, but a bush stone-curlew, on my front lawn only a couple of meters away. It was watching me warily, but I snapped a few pics and pushed the kids inside and she’s still out there chilling even now a couple of hours later.

Obviously I’ve locked the cat flap too so they can’t go out and try to tangle with our guest. I might stay up late tonight and see if I can hear her singing 😀
