Suburban Wildlife 4

There is also a pair of Australasian Grebes nesting in the ornamental lake at Subiaco Common, surrounded by houses.

The birds keep adding pieces of water plant to the nest, which made us think they were still building it. But when we saw the eggs inside, it became clear that they were doing home improvements, ready for their growing family. When they leave the nest, they cover the eggs with water weed to keep them safely hidden.
