I sold the weather gods a dummy. Was on the way to the car wash this morning but forgot my wallet. Seems to have done the trick though. Things getting gnarly here in Norwood.

The rain bird is the Burchell's Coucal
I also grew up with the believe in the call of the "Piet-my-vrou" (Red-chested cuckoo)I do not know to which bird you refer to when talking about the rainbird, but my wife and I absolutely believe in the call of the "Piet-my-vrou" (red-chested cuckoo). Never disappointed. When the Piet-my-vrou calls, rain is imminent, if not that same day, it will be tomorrow.
The rainbird is back! Started singing this morning. Back on their nest. The most reliable sign of all. The rainy season is now here.
Yup, unless it swings around, it is not going to get to us.Looks like your bird was accurate for today!
A small squall line developed earlier this afternoon in the south, and made its way north bringing some nice moderate rain with it
Unfortunately, I don't think it'll make it's way too much further north, as it is already dissipating.
