For the past few weeks a Grey Shrike-thrush has been singing enthusiastically around the house.
It was no surprise therefore to discover a nest being constructed in a hanging basket beside the kitchen door. This site has been used before – a pair of White-browed Scrub-wrens nested here in 2013. Earlier this spring the scrub-wrens were busy removing old nesting material from the basket to make a nest nearby … now the shrike-thrush has moved in. Never a dull moment!
