Hi All

Was working at the northern end of the Sugarloaf Range west of Newcastle
today and found a White-browed Scrub Wren nest with eggs. It was tucked into
a grassy tussock right on the ground.

Also found what was probably a Striated Thornbill nest, newly made, on the
ground with a big hole torn out of the back. I have previously seen a pair
of Noisy Friar birds methodically demolishing a ST nest and using the
material for their own. All the while the thornbills were frantically trying
to defend their territory and nestlings- it's a rough world out there!
