Spring … it’s building

Perhaps it was pure chance that it caught my eye.

A panel of bark, slightly ajar from the trunk of the Grey Box tree … a collection of plant debris at the junction. A perfect site for the nest of one of my woodland favourites.

Moments later a female Hooded Robin alighted on the bark panel … a work in progress.

    What a wonderful series on the Hooded Robin Geoff. As the nesting season begins in our suburban Adelaide garden, we have been treated to a great deal of nest building activity, but your robins have taken the cake for ingenuity. Thanks for the time and trouble that you take to keep us all aware of the need for increased habitat for our native wildlife and the motivation for us to work towards the goal of protecting and expanding what we have. Thanks again!! Harold B-B
