I see and hear Speckled Warblers on a reasonably regular basis in both the Muckleford and Sandon State Forests. Photographs however, are few and far between, and until today I’d never captured a pair in the one frame. It appears my luck was in with the male carrying a food offering for the female, encouraging a close approach. Pre-nuptial feeding is a common behaviour in many species and while I didn’t actually see the food passed from male to female I’m confident that this was what was happening in this case.
