Still a very interesting record. The GBS database contains a few recent records of Display behaviour from 'a site in Carwoola' for weeks 35 to 37 (ie exactly the current time)! I can recall that in a couple of cases this involved the male capturing Apina collina caterpillars and feeding them to the female and note that we spotted a major emergence of these caterpillars last week.|
I have yet to record a Pallid Cuckoo here this season.

Many thanks to Philip and Michael for thoughtful comments. I have now reviewed descriptions of the juvenile and immature plumages of this sp and, altho I did not have binoculars with me when I saw these birds, and the light was poor, I now believe that it was a case of an adult male feeding an adult female, i.e. courtship behaviour. In other words, I was probably wrong in identifying it as a dependent young.
