Author's notes

Over the past couple of weeks there is a lot of confusion about the birds in this location. Two territories abound (and used to have a distinct boundary- see previous two sightings), until the corner territory was taken over. Additional birds from the previously mentioned tribe, have now arrived at perhaps a three way junction. I've counted in excess of 15 birds when the two 'families' combined should only number 12 at maximum. Will need to continue to monitor this area. Non-breeding as far as I can tell.
