Brown and White-throated Treecreepers are nesting at the moment.
I spent some nice time in the sunshine today, watching a pair of Brown Treecreepers tending a nest, at the Rise and Shine. Regular visits were greeted by noisy chattering from inside the hollow. The nest was about two metres off the ground, inside a narrow crack in a small River Red-gum.
There is lots of breeding activity happening – Eastern Yellow Robins and Yellow-tufted Honeyeaters were both constructing nests nearby – I suspect last week’s rain, a welcome 25mm, has generated some new interest.
