I just found a Yellow-throated Scrubwren's scraggy, pendulous nest near the entrances to Erith Coal Mine - a cool discovery. I'll keep an eye on this nest from July, when it's the bird's primary breeding time. I located another YTS's nest a couple of years back at Fitzroy Falls and had the great pleasure of watching a bird coming to and from the nest's side entrance hole one morning... I came across the same nest weeks later, lying on the forest floor, a cold egg in its central chamber.
