When we stopped for coffee at New Farm Park this scruffy bird came and sat next to us. I have no idea what kind of bird it is. Stop Press, Christian says it is a common crow with a problem with its neck.
On our walk we saw these trees. They were unusual in that they had lost their leaves and just had seed pods dangling. We don't have many deciduous trees in the sub tropics.
They looked pretty against the blue sky.
I don't know what kind of tree it is. This post proves that I'm not big on biological names. Stop Press Our friend Roland says that it is a "Robinia pseudoacacia"
