Hi Everyone,
While walking in a local park today we saw 5 Magpie Lark nests all close together in two trees adjacent to a lagoon in Old Orchard Estate at Palmwoods.  One was being used by White-breasted Woodswallows, one by Crested Pigeons and another by the Peewees themselves.  The nests are made of a combination of grass and mud with much more grass than usual.  It was interesting to see the pigeons on a substantially built mud nest instead of their usual flimsy stick nest. Does anyone know if Magpie Larks often hand over (or have their nests taken over) by other birds?  Maybe Sea Change prices apply to birds as well as humans.
Merry Christmas to all,
