Two birds calling (one seen) in my Chapman GBS site yesterday. First here for several months.

Over the past three years I have seen a few kookaburras breeding in Belconnen:
- in a hollow remnant E blakelyi (I was alerted by a myna removing 2 eggs);
- in a hollow modern E globulus - mynas also bred there in the same season (the tree has been cut down - perhaps a classic case of victim blame);
- in hollow exotic trees in the Ginninderra Creek corridor.

So far this season I have seen kookaburra breeding activity only in the exotic trees.

A Kookaburra was perched on power cables near entrance to landfill site off Parkwood Road, W. Belconnen, last Friday afternoon. First one I’ve seen in the ACT for about 6 months.
