Most definitely signs of breeding.  One pair of the three pairs seen, were both displaying excitedly with feathers puffed up and calling in a peculiar growlish way. The male was pursuing the female amongst the upper branches of a large very leafy tree.  This went on for about 5 minutes, and then I saw the male deflated with wings held down and  back in what I believe to be breeding mode.  In addition a single male was calling persistently, and a single female was hanging out in a feeding flock.


A very pleasing visit
