Caught this barely juvenile Little Shrike-Thrush (Colluricincla megarhyncha) demanding food from busy parents in Tyto this week. Was aware birds had a nest in the general area, but have decided not to haunt nest areas - except in exceptional cases.
Things rather quiet with many birds vanishing since the latest rain. So to continue with theme of hungry brown birds, here's a young Brush Cuckoo seen exhorting two frantic Brown-backed Honeyeaters to greater effort the other day.
And a holdover, female Figbird. The species has been notably successful lately chasing various beetles. Seems the Orioles, Yellow, and Olive-backed, face stiff competition.
Crocodile nest update: no sign croc; nest may have been near submersion very briefly. May not be able to follow it up if there's more heavy rain soon.
