A pair of Australian ravens are building a nest on Farrer Ridge.  Today they were bringing both twigs and mouthfuls of grass.  Both birds are fetching and building.  Mostly they return to the nest one at a time, but on a couple of occasions they were at the nest together, and then they left one after the other.


Location:  Farrer Ridge.  Enter through the gate near the Sulwood/Sainsbury roundabout.   Turn right and walk about 30 metres before crossing the man-made ditch.  Proceed towards the ridge, keeping the natural creek bed on your left.  The tree is about 100 metres (perhaps a little more) from the ditch on the eastern side of the natural creek bed.  It is a large old gum tree having a spreading appearance something like an oak tree.  There is a natural depression in the ground just to the north-west of the tree in which one can sit and recline in comfort whilst observing the construction works.
