Hi all,

Have another question for you all. I have been reading up on this but can't find anything on this issue in any books etc. Last week i saw two White-browed Scrubwrens feeding a young Cuckoo in their nest at Hinze Dam on the Gold Coast in Queensland. This week i saw the two White-browed Scrubwrens around the nest however they were not feeding the cuckoo but three Large-billed Scrubwren's were. Has observed this before? Can anyone explain what is happening here? Thanks for your help.

Yours Sincerely
Mr Jade Welch
