Hi Julian & Fay - Drongo arrived on Friday 29th
Sept and is still around Bongaree.
Although we still have no Dollarbirds here ,there
were 2 very exited ones playing in tall gums in Cosmos Park, Banksia Beach
3-4Klms north on Monday 2nd October - less than 100mts from Whistling Kite nest
which currently has an overfed fledgling - the grass around the gum is littered
with bream bones, eel heads, one complete small eel, many unidentified fish
bones, Rainbow Lori & Asain Turtledove remains.
For the last 2 summers we have had a Dollarbird
pair nesting, producing one
offspring on both occasions. Unfortunately
8-10 100ft. gums have been removed
during the winter
from the immediate vicinity and I wonder if this will deter them nesting here
Regards - Sarah
