Hi All

I was at Floriade this arvo for a performance at Stage 88.  I noticed there was a pair of pardalotes (unidentified) that occasionally flew into one of the drains.  I assume they might be building a nest in their, as at one point, I saw a pardalote with a stick-like object disappear down the drain.  I was unable to spend much time there, but I think other COG members will probably head to Floriade this Spring.  I have attached a photo which shows the location of the drain.  It is the one just above the top left stage post in the picture.

I would really appreciate it if anyone could investigate and tell me if they believe it to be a nesting site.

Regards, Matt.
