Today my wife and I observe a Wompoo sitting on a nest with an egg, above the sign half way round the walk at the Curtain Figtree, Yungaburra. This nest was constructed in the days before Christmas 2004. Yes just over 12 months ago. A second pair was observed repairing a nest at the same time last year. This nest had been constructed in December 2003 and laid in in June 2004. It has since fallen down completely. I asked at the time, mid last year if others had records of such forward preparation by birds and do so again. What do you know of such behaviour?
