I noticed a comment on
the front-page of Gang-Gang which I received
today, stating that the wetter conditions had
had no effect on the success of birds breeding.
I wish to state that our experience is Fraser
has been very different. Striated Pardalotes
nested three times, and today we six of them
perched on a wire. We had both Willie Wagtails
and Magpie-Larks breeding in close proximity on
one of our large Eucalypts. The Willie Wagtails
produced two broods, one from the first and two
from the second. The Magpie-Larks also produced
one from the first and one from the second.
