As a follow on from Martin's comments yesterday, I was wondering if anyone can add to our understanding of the White-throated Treecreeper behaviour we witnessed at Mount Jerrabomberra yesterday.
We heard the birds calling (both types of calls), and when we located them they flew around the general area for a while, both male and female having a food item. They would sometimes go to the entrance to the tree hollow, but it was only after a few minutes that the female entered the hollow, but came out still with the moth. On our return trip we did not see either bird.
