Yesterday we strolled around the Xanthorrhoea Track at
Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve to check if the Grass Trees
were in flower, and they are. Was interested to see a
pair of Dusky Woodswallows with a nest in the crown of
one of the grass trees. They were, in succession,
sitting on eggs or chicks. 

A photo is attached of a DuWo flying from the nest.
With a bit of imagination, you may be able to see it
deep in the leaves.
