Jude reported White-browed Woodswallows vigorously protecting their young on the ground.
I observed the same behaviour last week at Campbell Park and naturally moved on when I realised what the fuss was about.
Passing by the same spot an hour or so later, I observed a very different behaviour. A young W-b Woodswallow (possibly the same one) was motionless on a dead branch at eye level and doing its best Tawny Frogmouth impression. The parents were nearby but kept silent as I moved in a little closer for a quick photo.
