I have often noticed RB Finches carrying grass stalks around for a while. Sometimes they are clearly building a nest or doing some kind courtship dance directed at another bird, most of the time they just carry a stalk around for a little while then drop it.

A Red-browed Finch turned up in a large lerp-guzzling MFF at my home this morning (lots of Tasmanian Silvereyes amongst them).  But it was carrying a long grass stalk.  Why at this stage of the season, I wonder?  And how should I record it, as NB?  It is more in the nature of parrot-like IH behaviour.
