Hi all! Just a quick question. On a recent field trip in WA, I noticed a
yellow-rumped thornbill exhibiting very strange behaviour. When it flitted
from branch to branch, it appeared to lose its balance and hang from the
underside of each branch, rather than perching on top of the branch. It did
this all the time I was watching it. Has anyone else observed this and does
anyway know of an explanation for this? Perhaps its physiological eg.
disease, parasites (Shane?)
