Hi there birders,

A reader of my birding blog has asked whether I had ever seen two wattlebirds demonstrating synchronised flying.

The way she describes it this is more than just an accidental or coincidental event, but rather quite deliberate on the part of the birds concerned. It is certainly bizarre behaviour that I certainly haven't witnessed.

You can read her description here:

We would appreciate comments left on the blog page concerned (she is not a subscriber to Birding-Aus).
