New Hollands can nest in any month of the year. Although Pizzey states July to 
January as the main breeding season, they regularly breed throughout the autumn 
months. This year I watched one feeding nestlings on 11th May while thousands 
of Yellow-faced and White-naped Honeyeaters migrated over. 

I’ll never forget once finding a New Holland nest with 2 nestlings right beside 
an active lyrebird mound in mid-winter, while the lyrebird was in full display. 
What a show to begin your life with!
