We were birding when the sac, photo below, was discovered.


Possibly an insect/caterpillar sac, approximately 300 + mm in length, was located at Rawlings Park Bush Reserve, Wagga Wagga hanging beneath the outer canopy of a Eucalyptus spp. approx. 15 metres from the ground.   The sac contains what appears to be a largish round ball, dark in colour.   Woven into the sac are leaves and twigs. 


Identification would be appreciated.
