This trip took place on 6 july
I’m a little bit late in writing this post. It has been a busy couple of weeks and I still don’t have the internet connected here yet! I’m hijacking the internet connection via Glenns phone at the moment, so all the posts from today will be a tad rushed.
I had spent the weekend at mums. I’d promised Sethy and adventure but the weather had been bad, plus I wanted to get back to the house in time to look for owls with Carolyn. I told Sethy we’d go down there on the Monday. It turned out, we got there just in time for some decent rain. It was still a blast though.
You see, we observed some nesting behaviour from the crows and the cockatoos. The cockatoos were flying from hollow to hollow. They were biting off bits of back around the hollow and then scooping up and chucking out the shavings. Two rainbow lorikeets ended up scaring them away from here so I don’t know if they will use this hollow.
The other behaviour was the crows collecting twigs for their nest. Two of them were doing it. They would break sticks off trees and find ones on the ground. Break them up into smaller pieces to make the nest. I don’t know if they ended up using any stuff from the herons nest from last year.
Below are the relevant photos, as well as pictures of a pretty swamphen. Sorry for the lack of explanation, I will be doing more research about nests.
