It is my suggestion that your comments about the
Pardalotes could be expanded into an article for CBN if you get a bit more
observations on them.
Also the bit on "the only bird I have known to
catch a fish is one of our resident magpie larks that caught a baby
fish about 2.5 cm long" is certainly worth publishing. I wonder if this has
been recorded before. If not or infrequently, if you hurry and if it is not
already too late, you might even get it mentioned in HANZAB Vol 7 (unless it has
been documented better elsewhere - I'd say it is worth a try). It may even
be worth asking them do they have any other similar cases.
