White-throated Gerygone Nesting 29/12/12

This morning we discovered a nest of a White-throated Gerygone at Jarowair.  The nest is in a medium sized gum tree located between our house and our shed.  We remember seeing a similar nest in the same tree around 6+ years ago.  Brendon captured these photos of the nest this morning.  J.G.

    1. Thanks John, they have still been busy going back and forth to the nest - its hard to imagine how small the babies must be as the nest is so small!
