Cute but destructive
As lovable as they are (even when screeching overhead like the devil's fingernails on a blackboard) they can do so much damage to a house. We've already had an inkling that they have caused problems in the past as many of the window frames bear ominous beak marks on them and are missing huge chunks from the timber.
Then today, I just happened across one of these little devils in the act of tucking into the balcony railing. Thankfully it had only just got started with one beakful before I chased it away, but I'm keeping a weather eye out for the buggers now.
