Hello birders..there's an interesting nest at Brisbane International airport
at the moment. A pair of White-faced Herons have set up a nest on the side
of the building directly above the spot where airport workers enter the
building. Apparently some unsuspecting  workers have been deposited on from
a great height! So the Airport Corporation has set up a warning sign with a
photo of a WFH. To their credit they have left the nest alone. I have not
heard of WFH's nesting on buildings before. This site resembles a tree fork
because it is where the struts branch up to support the roof. Last year,
just outside my office on the tarmac, a pair of Magpie Larks built a nest on
a hydraulic hose underneath a moveable aerobridge! Every time an aircraft
arrived at the gate the birds went for a little ride!

Cheers Steve Murray
