Recently whilst observing a Noisy Pitta nest at Mount Glorious SE Qld we
photographed one of the parents carrying a large prey-item, which may be a
small bat-species (possibly a baby?......Chris Corben are you out there?)
I've uploaded some rather poor pics onto Picasa at
They were taken with a Canon EOS7D with an extreme ISO setting (6400) to
avoid using a flash.
For obvious reasons I won't give any precise locations of the nest at the
moment as the young are currently about to fledge, but I would welcome any
comments regarding the prey item.
