Birds coming and going...

Mostly unnoticed right in the busy Corso are the Figbirds (Sphecotheres viridis), seasonally visiting. Kookaburras even breeding successfully right on Manly beach. Soon their large old tree in which they nest will turn into a huge development site. With the old trees going and leaf litter blown away with noisy petrol machines they will have to set up 'Elsewhere'.

19.08.05 - There were six Figbirds sighted today eating white cedar fruit. They were very vocal, but no-one seem to notice them.
