|Yellow-eyed currawong, size of a large crow, eating a palm berry.|
At ten metres, the palms grew too tall for the suburban scene. At about one metre distance from a neighbouring property and August winds on the horizon, I feared for children in one neighbour's pool and solar panels on another neighbour's roof. Plus, currawongs from far and wide regularly to feed on the crimson berries. With forty birds bending the branches of a nearby bottlebrush, it wasn't worth the trouble trying to garden,. They were fairly threatening.
