Yesterday while I was at work I pulled up at a roadside stop for a break and this little butcher bird seemed very interested in my Van, he started attacking the cover on the front, hung off the aerial and checked out the tyres as well.:-)Naturally i had my camera along with me.:-)

here he is checking out the roo bar at the front of the vehicle





And hanging off the UHF radio aerial








He eventually flew over and sat on a farm fence and watched me

Obviously not to bright. He probably saw a commercial where you're supposed to kick the tires to check the car; very gullible....

Nice work Alady
