White browed scrub wren

A couple of weeks ago while harvesting at our place (code for whipper snippering) I managed to unearth a ground level White Browed Scrub Wren nest next to a small tree I was snippering around.  It was the first time I’ve actually found a Scrubwren nest at our place NOT in our carport or shed. And the first time I’ve found one on the ground.  I actually whipper snippered the top off the nest before I realised it was there – exposing downy feathers used to line the top of the cul de sac nest.  I then promptly whacked some grass clippings and other stuff back over to cover it up.  They were still feeding young or visiting the nest a few days later.  Cheers GJ
