Varigated Fairy Wren hidden amongst the branches.
 
Unsure on the ID of this bird.  We saw it eating a worm/grub from the branch of this tree.
 
White-Browed Scrub Wren
This Nesting Box was up very high in a Gum Tree at J.E. Duggan Park.... just shows that these boxes can be homes to other creatures, not only birds and possums.... don't think anything will be venturing into this one with its current inhabitants residing in it though!!

  1. Hi Brendon & Judi,
    Looks like you had a nice day out.
    Your unsure ID looks like a Grey Shrike-Thrush.
    Is that a White-Throated Treecreeper in the photo above it?
    Cheers,
    John
