Hi there birders,

Some bird species can be quite sneaky in their nesting habits. We have some bushes a few metres from our sun room where we eat our meals and often spend a good part of the day. While having breakfast this morning my wife observed a New Holland Honeyeater flying to a nest in one of the bushes. A quick visit to the nest revealed 2 lovely eggs.

Right under our noses - almost. They built the nest and commenced sitting without us seeing them.

I'll post a photo on my blog soon.

Happy birding
