In the spring season of 2012 we were at the Little Desert National Park. While walking along a track, we came across a nest at just above waist height in a native shrub. A small finch like bird flew off as we walked past. We took this picture but were not able to view the bird later and did not want to disturb the nest again.
Any birdos out there that can ID this nest?

Hi I was flicking through the magazine last night while feeding my baby wombat when I came across your article on the Scarlet Honeyeater.
During the hot weather we had a couple of weeks ago I had the sprinkler running all day so the little birds could try to cool down, one little bird that I had never seen stayed under the water most of the day, I had no idea that a lot of the birds were as there were at least 100 different species most I had never seen on my property. I took a photo of this little guy and could not identify him until I saw him in the Wildlife Secrets magazine, I live south of Nowra on the South Coast

The Flat Rocks fossil site at Inverloch is located approximately 150 km south-east of Melbourne, on the south coast of Victoria. The area has special significance to Australia’s fossil history as the discovery of Australia’s first dinosaur bone, the Cape Paterson Claw, was found at a nearby site in 1903 by William Ferguson. The currently active site was discovered in 1991 when a group of researchers from Monash University and Museum Victoria were prospecting that part of the coastline for suitable locations for potential fossil dig sites. The dinosaur dreaming project annually does fossil hunts. According to the museum Victoria website they are no longer taking volunteers.
On a whim I took my daughter who is dinosaur mad out to the region.
