another blackbird nest

My suspicions appear to be confirmed ... the blackbirds have two sets of babies per season.  For the first time since living here, they've made a nest in the fig tree!
I don't hear babies chirping yet, so there's a chance they'll abandon this nest as they did the last one.  I do wish sometimes that something other than blackbirds would nest here.  I did see a currawong for the first time in my garden although I didn't get a snap.  They're huge black birds, but I then found out they have a habit of killing and eating small birds.  I'd rather have my thornbills eating bugs than a big giant currawong any day.
