Jabirus carry on life in the sticks
Time for spot of rebuilding by local pair of Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus) with the birds this morning heading southwest across the main lagoon at Tyto carrying nest sticks. Just the one trip by each bird. Perhaps more to come.
Rarer sighting yesterday, with immature White-eared Monarch (Carterornis leucotis) showing out around outer foliage of trees near the lookout. Bit early in the year for the uncommon visitor: some years go by without any sightings.
Meanwhile Little Kingfisher (Ceyx pusilla) keeps popping up along the creekline and also, as above, among the pink lotuses on the lagoon.
