After a shower of rain the other morning, there were a lot of flying ants around the yard, and the birds were busy picking at them. Because I did not have a decent photo of a Pied Currawong, it was too good of an opportunity to not grab the camera while the birds were busy. The Pied Currawong was anting! At first I was wondering what it was doing, though after watching for a while I could see it was getting the ants and putting them on its feathers, and under its' wings.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anting_%28bird_activity%29
