Female on nest
Highfields, Queensland, Australia
December 23, 2013
Kevin Williams and I had an early start on Monday. It was surprisingly cool at 5am and I would have been comfortable with long sleeves. Kevin showed me a Cicadabird nest with the female sitting. We had a quick look then went off birding. We went back about 4 hours later when it was much warmer, and the female had gone and we could just make out the face of a single chick. We waited for a while but the Mum didn't return soon so we left. I bet she was watching and waiting.
