Interpretive Birding Bulletin
and now others on birding aus.

An excellent idea. I was thinking of that too. I can add to that: Striped
Honeyeater & Grey Butcherbird. I've encountered nests of Diamond Firetails
& Yellow rumped Thornbills in the stick structure of nests of Little Eagles.

I would once again like to tap the experience of Birding-Aus subscribers.
Currently, I am writing an article on nesting associations between different
species of birds and between birds and other animals.   I am aware of the
following associations:

Restless Flycatchers & Black and White birds (e.g. Magpie Larks)
Willie Wagtails and Magpie Larks
Regent Honeyeaters & Friarbirds
Leaden Flycatchers and Friarbirds
Assorted finches and birds of prey
Osprey and assorted birds
Assorted birds associated with wasps nests.
If anyone knows of additional Australian examples or would care to
on the above examples, feel free to do so.  I will give credit where it
is due, if I mention your personal experiences in the IB Bulletin article.

Cheers, Jim
