Nesting Time Again

October 17, 2018

Birds are nesting everywhere at present.

 

While doing my Birds on farms Surveys last week, I came across this one, unexpectedly, as this species usually nests high in the trees in Yellow Gum Woodlands.

 

 

This Grey Butcherbird has built her nest in  a River Redgum right in the creek- not that there is any water to be had but at least the food supply is probably better here than out in the very parched woodlands.

Many other birds are nesting in the same area- Weebills, a pair of Spotted Pardalotes, White-browed Babblers  and Restless Flycatchers and none seem concerned by this ferocious predator in their midst.
