Sharp and fuzzy

I checked on this Eastern Yellow Robin nest last evening – just a single egg being incubated … must be almost ready to hatch.

An unexpected surprise was coming across a few Rainbow Bee-eaters nesting nearby. I’ll be back to track their progress over coming days.

  1. Hi Geoff,
    I hope that poor little Robin isn’t sitting on a Cuckoo’s egg?
