Hi Bird Lovers
Whilst on Lady Carrington Drive
today, I came across a pair of very attractive light morph Little Eagles
building a nest in a treetop by the river. I think that this may be the first
nesting record for the Park but this species has been sighted elsewhere in
the park on a couple of occasions in the past.
If anybody out there has a special
conservation related interest in viewing this bird and the nesting
activity, I am happy to reveal the precise location. However, until the young
are hatched and becoming advanced, I wouldn't feel comfortable revealing it to
all and sundry.
Other interesting observations were:
the return of the Topknot Pigeons (now you can say "It's spring"
folks!), advanced moulting in a great many male Superb Lyrebirds, and several
Satin Bowerbirds back from their flocking activities and into bower construction
Excellent abundance today with all of
the regular species for that area. One point of interest however, is the recent
lack of Azure Kingfishers on the Hacking River. I saw one at Bonnie Vale last
week but only one sighting in three weeks on the Hacking. I know that there is a
migratory tendency with this species, but it seems as if all have abandoned the
Hacking at the moment.
