First spotted by a group of birders perching high up on a tree. Subsequently, flew around and landed on a tree nearby to me (~5m) thus allowing me to grab a closeup. There were a few occasions when the foster tailorbird was spotted feeding it (only got a few blur after shots as my hands got tired from shooting handheld) :(

Description

Believed to be building its nest in psr. Nest is about the size as that at SBWR. Observed the nest at around 11am and went for a quick lunch before returning around 3pm. Spent 3 hours looking at the nest and observed adult WBSE only flying and circling above the nest. No visible juveniles were observed. Adult WBSE were also noted to be making loud honking noises. Stayed till 6pm before leaving the area. Will check out if it's an active or abandoned nest.

Note: Had a chat with a jogger who spotted me photographing the GBW. He told me about the location of the WBSE nest and that he saw it getting bigger in size each day (perhaps a nearby resident). Spent some time finding it upon getting there. Great to see a WBSE nest in psr ever since the previous at OFS area

"Knock knock"
"Who's there?"
"Sunda"
"Sunda who?"
"Sunda knock a hole out of this branch"

This adorable little bird spent more than an hour pecking and knocking off the wood on the branch. Interesting to see it sticking its head in and out of the hole and eventually making enough space for its tiny little upper torso barely fit inside the hole

The terns did not show up. However, this gave me time to look around the surroundings and saw this cockatoo. Observed the cockatoo flying and chasing away 2 crows (a few other crows were also roosting on nearby trees) that were perching on a branch.

Thy courage is indeed admirable! For thou fear no crows (unlike the WBSE) ;)

Others are interested in a millipede(?) instead.

Note: Spotted a diurnal raptor in the background (not captured by my camera) moving from an upper branch to a lower branch. Raptor was observed to be fully black with its back facing me. My guess is that it could be a black morph OHB or CHE. A black morph of the latter was noted to be observed nearby by others.
