Author's notes

This is a tribe of about 36 birds that moved into the neighbour around July last year (2016). The numbers keep growing as several have now moved on and established nearby territories, and in at least one case, kicked out the previous breeding pair, but there still seems to be around 36 birds. Hard to get an exact count.
