Following a successful bout of nesting there are now many juvenile Fairy Martins being fed by their parents. The youngsters often assemble along fence-lines to wait for regular visits by the adults feeding nearby on flying insects. At this stage of their ‘careers’ the juveniles are not attuned to danger … this is great for close-up images, but many must perish from the predations of raptors and other bird hunters, such as kookaburras and currawongs.
