Nestled in a Grey Box

It feels like autumn – cool, crisp mornings and the Grey Box is starting to flower. Let’s wish for an influx of Swift Parrots in coming weeks.

I was intrigued to find some Fuscous Honeyeaters nesting along Mia Mia Road. The nest, at head height, was slung amongst a cluster of Grey Box blossoms – three fluffy nestlings responding to a stream of visits from the parents.
