...nearby; th male also preened but called when she moved closer.This female arrived back in August and displaced the long time resident female who had been here since 2000; two breeding attempts have been made with the male absent for 6 weeks, but sadly neither was successful. You can hear microhylid frogs, Orange-footed Scrubfowl and Superb Fruit-Dove in the background, also raindrops!
