Black cocky given the bird

Well, for once the Black Cocky was wrong.
Usually the calls of this bird signal the coming of rain...not this time.
This Yellow tailed avian was seen in pine trees near my place, with a mate, calling those rain clouds...but they never came.

This was the day before the Robbo Show.....

Last year the entrants in the smash up derby had trouble seeing each other for the fog....nothing unusual about that, happens every year... That's the way we like it :)
This year was rainless, fog less and moderate of temperature.
Still, everyone grinned and bore it.
The Fireworks were a treat....some photos below

Denis has a nice writeup of the events on his blogsite.
