How did they get to these shores? I've heard 2 theories. One that they were allowed 'free range' at Birdworld in Farnham and they took that to mean free range away from the park. The other is that they were being used on a film set and decided that filming wasn't for them...

We too have them along the roadside trees in Gladstone Park. They will happily raid the garden if there is food out and have formed a sybiotic relationship with the rooks who sit waiting underneath the feeders who, being more agile, can find a way to extract the food from the containers. They seem unconcerned by any other birds. I thought thought that they came from Eastern Europe, Turkey originally and East of there and were also introduced to Australia the same way.
