Bush bird breeding is in full swing at the moment. For small birds, like this Buff-rumped Thornbill, the window for reproduction can be brief. If conditions turn dry and hot there may only be time for one, perhaps two nesting attempts, while a cool moist summer may provide an opportunity for further effort. This nest was featured earlier this month when the birds were incubating – nestlings can fledge after about three weeks, so the young may have successfully departed the nest site by now.
