More evidence of breeding activity, this time in and around the home garden.
Next door a pair of Common Bronzewings have ‘constructed’ a nest in a planted eucalyptus. Luckily no building permit is required … this species would always struggle to get an occupancy certificate. Horsfield’s Bronze-cuckoos arrived a few weeks back, and have now been joined by Shining Bronze-cuckoos, Fan-tailed and Pallid Cuckoos. The bird pictured below is one of a number calling with sweet regularity along our street, where rosellas are checking out nest sites in hollows in the elms.
