Last summer we were pleased to discover a pair of Weebills nesting in one of our backyard Yellow Gums. Typically this species chooses a site in the outer canopy, where the domed nest is woven from cobwebs and fine grass, and suspended amongst the foliage. It’s always fascinating to see the nest swinging like a pendulum in windy conditions – a masterpiece of fine engineering. This season the Weebills are back in almost the exact same site and I’ve been enjoying their regular comings and goings over recent days. Often one of the adults will hover expertly beside the nest before diving into the dome via the side entrance.
