Reinventing the proverbial

I was driving the mower along today and noticed some birds on a roof - they were all Butcherbirds. Then a few minutes later I drove past a leaking pipe and some birds were splashing in the water - they were all Noisy Miners. And after that I looked up to see some birds flying around the trees, and they were all Magpies. And I actually got as far as thinking, "It's funny how birds of the same type hang together," before it belatedly hit me that, yes, "Birds Of A Feather (really DO) Flock Together."

Sigh. And that was the most interesting thought I had all day.
