A pair of Red-backed Kingfishers have selected a small hollow in a Gidyea tree in our house yard to nest. At first they were looking at one in a River Red Gum, but probably thought it was too big and Ian observed them looking at the Gidyea for a few days and yesterday we watched the male going to the hollow with food in his mouth so assume he was feeding the female.

The Black-breasted Buzzard chick {mentioned in an earlier posting} will probably fledge this week, but the Square-tailed Kites are a way off as are the Brown Falcons.
