Nesting at ANBG is a quite different thing from them nesting in people's gardens in the suburbs. ANBG is a very large area of great habitat, so I'd suggest that is hardly unusual there. That is different from suburban gardens. Both Martin and I were referring to GBS data, which as far as I know has never included ANBG (though some sites have included ANU). I will admit that is not exactly what Chris' original question was asking. That just asked about Canberra, not GBS.
Even so, neither Martin or I suggested it was a "rarity". Another example of misunderstanding of perception words - the point I was making.
-----Original Message-----I had no idea that spinebills nesting was a rarity, as they're common in the ANBG throughout the year; I've found 3 nests this year there (last one with chicks a couple months ago; I could check my records if it's of interest). Should have followed them more closely!
