To and fro and mysterious light Published 21 November, 2018 | By Cilla Kinross
The youngsters have been flying backwards and forwards between the tower and roost trees and doing every widening circles over the campus and beyond. I expect they will start making their own kills soon and start to become more independent.
Meanwhile they have been using the box a fair bit, even spending the night in the box. Otherwise they can usually be found in the dead near in the paddock to the south of the campus. The light was very poor when I took the photos as rain was approaching ( and we even got some, about 8 mm last night, better than nothing).

We have also been seeing a mysterious light coming on in the trees, usually about 930 pm, 1 am and 4 am, but also at other times. it seems to be on or near the entrance road behind the Girinyalanha Park, but it just comes on and goes off after half a minute. No car comes or goes. Much investigation and speculation has ensued and I even visited at night trying to see something (without success). It’s not very clear on these images… Will keep you posted.

Both juveniles visit the nest Published 26 November, 2018 | By Cilla Kinross

Over the weekend and this morning, both juveniles have paid visits to the nest, as well as being sighted in and around their roost trees. They are getting harder to photograph in the field as they have become more wary of my vehicle or person, but I have some from the box.
As you’ve probably gathered, I have a Youtube account now, so you can go back and check on previous videos if you cannot find them here or on the google hangout.
The juveniles are getting to be large and strong – and very cheeky. I originally thought this was Budhin, but when I look at the image from the ledge, I think it’s actually Gamma. Anyway, this bird is giving their mother, Diamond a hard time.

We had a visit from a juvenile starling. A big rash, considering how often this species ends up as dinner..

I expect the youngsters to start spending a bit more time further from the nest and the roost trees, so it might be a bit harder for me to catch up with them, but I will do my best. Last year, the male left the district after only 3 or 4 weeks (or at least I couldn’t find him), but the female stayed around until late January.

Birdfriend, thank you very much - hard time for parents :mrgreen: , so nice still to see the juveniles :D

Juveniles late afternoon Published 27 November, 2018 | By Cilla Kinross
Some pictures from a trip around the campus yesterday afternoon: Mostly Budhin (and Budhin’s rear end). Where the two birds are in the tree together, Gaama is on top and Gaama is also in the bottom three pictures on branches. You can see the water tower behind the trees to get an idea of the distance. These trees are called yellow box, Eucalyptus melliodora and are probably 300 plus years and now dying. They need replacement, but it may not be easy in this location.
