The call of a male Pallid Cuckoo has been echoing down the canyon of Whiskers Creek for the past couple of days.  This morning a female answered for the first time.  Shortly afterwards I saw a male cuckoo land and grab a largfe caterpillar and present it to a female.  Probably not good news for honeyeaters.

I commented recently that "our" pair of Tawny Frogmouths had reappeared.  They have not been roosted snuggled together as in the past, but for the last 3 mornings twigs have been building up in the usual nest site.
