  1. Wonderful photos! I love hearing their drumming when I’m out in my backyard in Esperance. It was such an exciting surprise the first time I heard it after moving here last year. Thanks for the images – I have yet to personally observe one here.


  2. The adults usually show up around June 22nd, so they are about two weeks late this year. I haven’t seen the adult female yet, so she might be escorting a second chick.
