Thanks Mark,
definitely a possibility which I hadn't thought of, and something to bear in mind.
Would that explain the two birds holding a food item in their mouths though?
Do WTTCs roost together? Would they have permanent roost sites?
Sorry for my ignorance on this matter.
I guess a large part of my question related to the male and female both having a food item, and holding in their beaks for at least five minutes while we were watching them. It seemed to suggest that they were waiting for us to go away before they fed something???
Any thoughts?
