I'd forgotten about this thread and was thinking about starting a similar one for nesting birds. But this is an even better idea, Richard, and deserves some attention. So here is a pair of shining flycatchers from this morning at Howard Springs. They seem to take turns sitting and I assume there are now eggs in the nest (it's a bit high to see) so I'm hoping to get some photos of the chicks when they hatch. Especially if they have the bright colours inside their mouths that the adults do. The pretty cinnamon, black and white bird is the female.

Thanks for posting Pippan
This really is fascinating and beautiful.
Interesting the way they overlay the exterior with "plates" of leaves or bark (assume latter), like that little hummingbird nest earlier.
Hopefully see the progress



Richard

I just discovered this thread, what a great idea about all the nests.
This is the nest of the Magpie Geese, in the thread Wild birds of Australia I've posted pics of them. I don't know if any of the juveniles survived, a couple of weeks we had a few storms and they are often hiding on a nearby property.

Excellent photos Lyn2011 and thanks for jumping in.
I'm always intrigued to see other birds nests and wish I'd had a camera on many occasions from my work in the bush.

They are lovely little gozzlings

Thanks Richard. It happens indeed that I see something and haven't my camera with me.

White faced heron nest (you can just see the fuzz of the chick at the front and mum's head behind the branch) and a Red wattle bird nest with lots of plastic string in it :(

Jo those are all very interesting.
How nice to be able to see all those.

The Wattlebird is interesting. Would never have imagined them creating such a fine nest
