Subject: Co-operative breeding by Large-billed Gerygne
Probably not the best title for this enquiry but sort of made sense to me.
Yesterday I was watching a Large-billed Gerygone nest in Cairns and was
surprised to see that it was being "serviced" by three adults. On two
separate occasions I had three adults either in, on or just above the nest
at the same time. Is this normal? I could find nothing relating to this
sorting of collective / co-operative breeding in any of the very limited
sources I have available.
