In the Cairns suburb of Trinity Park (16/48 S, 145/42 E) I observed a White
Bellied Cuckoo Shrike nesting on power lines.  The nest is hard up against
an insulator and appears to be woven onto the insulator.  This is the first
time I have observed this species nesting on power lines.  Has anyone else
recorded this species nesting on powerlines?
