Yesterday on eBird Marnix reported a female Bassian Thrush being fed while sitting on a nest. Nests with sitting birds are rarely reported so I took the opportunity this morning to capture this  feeding behaviour, including the calls made. See


As you can tell from then video, the nest is well hidden.


Thanks to Marnix for the report.
