Hi All,

Just an update on Tuesday's post regarding the latest Australasian Grebe chicks at Mulligan's ....thanks to Richard for letting me know that there are in fact six chicks and not five as I thought ....

The chicks are very keen to ride on the parent's back and several seem to be doing so at the same time (see second photo). The photos aren't great but it was nice to get the entire family together!

Plenty of other breeding happening there - saw willie wagtail, noisy friarbird and magpie-lark nests; juvenile orioles, magpies, crimson rosellas, goshawk ... 

Superb parrots were near the main entrance, with adult males feeding juveniles.
