Hi Nevil,

while a majority of NMs appear to nest in the 2nd half of the calendar year, I find that it is not unusual for them to be nesting now.


During my early morning walk this morning in the Greenwich ( Sydney) bush,
I heard a Noisy Miner making its familiar call - on investigation, there was
a nest, quite exposed to the track.  There was a chick in the nest, and I
watched the parent feeding the chick.  Pizzey quotes breeding June -
December.  Is April breeding most unusual?
