Holder choughs update. Last week Two chicks visible and begging in the nest, being attended by 4 adults. Yesterday there was only one small tail protruding from the nest, and zero adults in the near surrounds, had me wondering what may have happened to the second one.

Narrabundah Hill choughs. Nest seen this morning just outside the reserve at the bottom of the northern boundary, two hungry chicks and about six adults tending. 

Also seen at the Hill This morning four white winged trillers, two southern whiteface, two common bronze wings and a lone gang gang.

On Wednesday 2 October the baby chough left the nest in Anzac Parade (near the Vietnam war memorial) and we saw the group in a garden opposite the nest tree in Anzac Park West..  Then we didn’t see them until yesterday when we saw the group of 10 adults but no chick.  Today one of the choughs was at the nest and another came to the nest with a beakful of soft plant material.  So it looks as though they are planning more breeding activities.
