Abstract

Edoliisoma tenuirostre, Jardin. Ceblepyris jardinii, Rüppell. Campephaga jardinii, Gould. During the latter end of September, 1882, Mr. C. C. L. Talbot observed a pair of these birds building their nest in the angle of a thin forked horizontal branch of an Ironbark (Eucalyptus sp.), about forty feet from the ground, on Collaroy Station, Broad Sound, 556 miles N. W. of Brisbane. A week after, seeing the female sitting on the nest for some length of time, he climbed up to it and found it contained a perfectly fresh egg, which he took (not waiting for the full complement, which is probably two), as the tree was a difficult one to climb, at the same time securing the nest.
