Author's notes

The Leaden Flycatchers were very active feeding their three young. There was a second male around as well, although he could have been chased off. One male also buzzed the Noisy Friarbird that was feeding its young in the same tree. Both parents were feeding the young, although I only observed the female clearing away what I am assuming were the fecal sacs excreted by the young, she took two away while I was watching. Both times she fed the young she would take a fecal sac. The male, who fed once during the intervening time did not take away a fecal sac.
