|Grey fantail, Phillip Island|
|Such a song - often heard but I'd not watched one singing close up before. The bill really opened wide for the highest silvery notes at the end of each song phrase|
|"I think I might build something of greatness ..."|
|Foundations, 50cm from a previous nest (last year's?) about a metre off the ground|
|Poor view of the arrival of another load of some fibrous plant matter.|
|What's good on TV? Spider webs of course|
|Sticky stuff though!|
This nest building requires some agility! There was much rapid fussing around the edges.
The next shots were taken one day later and the nest has taken greater shape. It gets tested for size ...
|The all important interior design cannot be ignored|
|This one's wineglass stem is a little off!|
|A peak inside reveals a single egg which is not shown well in this iphone shot|
|I wonder if I'll find a second egg soon.|
