Author's notes

This bird has previously been reported by JackyF at https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sighting/4176701 The young bird was out off the nest, on a branch in the canopy staying very quiet, barely moving. The wind picked up while I was photographing so it gripped harder to the branch, looking very un-gainly, as it held on, suggesting it was not yet ready to fly. There was no sign or calling of an adult bird.
