The lone female Grey-crowned Babbler can still be found at Duntroon. I
popped in yesterday evening to check on her for the first time in a couple
of months. She was in the same spot I've found her the last couple of times,
about 150m east of the tee where she was originally discovered.

The GCB (Golf-course Babbler?) spends most of her time foraging on the
ground under the large old pine trees. Occasionally she will forage on the
branches and cones of the pines.

Yesterday I observed her building a nest. Babblers build dormitory nests to
roost in at night so it's unlikely to be a breeding nest. The fact that she
is single doesn't inspire confidence in a breeding attempt either...

She also appears to be moutling her primaries.
