Hi Birders,

Black-eared Cuckoos in eastern NSW primarily lay their eggs in Speckled Warbler and Yellow-rumped Thornbill nests. The former nest on the ground but the latter can nest high in trees at times. Sometimes the nests are attached to the bottom of bird of prey nests, while at other times, the nest can be added to over time and so become big and bulky.

It is possible that the Black-eared Cuckoo seen by John Clifton-Everest at a large nest in a Eucalypt was actually checking out a Yellow-rumped Thornbill nest.
