The carport on my old shed has been adopted by the roo family as a favourite shade spot, now that spring is feeling like summer more often. It’s nicely dusty too, so they can swish their tails and roll about to help with the annoying insects.
The magpie attendant is there for the same purpose, I assume, to their mutual benefit.
Of course it’s less convenient for the roos when I park the ute in there, but being adaptable creatures, they simply lie underneath it.
I have already learnt to check for echidnas under there before I get in and start it up, but so far the roos move off when I actually reach them.
And when the hot weather creates a sudden sunshower, as it did the other day, the nearest garden tree or shrub will do for them and their maggie mate. I do wonder if it’s the same two roos and the same magpie.
