Yesterday, as I was walking down Upper Albert St I noticed a fluffed up bush thickknee lying in the drizzle on a sloping section of Wickham Park [not far from the yellow pole]. Today, as I was returning from lunch in the Roma St gardens, I noticed a pair of thickknees in one of the gardens above Albert St and wandered over to check their parental status. Sure enough, I could see one hatchling sitting between its parents - it looked a bit like a beige duckling with a dark eye patch. Not wishing to disturb the parents, I didn't approach too closely or hang around for too long, so I can't say whether a second chick was present. Anyhow, it is nice to see the thickknees breeding in Spring Hill as well as the city botanical gardens.

Regards, Laurie.
