Nice to see a few more Orange headed ground thrushes being bred, most of the Thrush family dont seem to be bothered with closed rings being fitted on there young.
Putting correct sized closed rings on the birds makes it much easier to keep records on them and of course makes them much easier to sell in Europe as they are very much against unrung birds.
Well done Chris.

Chick hatched today ( i removed their 3 chicks yesterday , looksl like two males and one female, The new chicks are really small at first. This pair is much larger than the others The female always seems to bully the male but no serious aggression but I do wonder how they produce fertile eggs.

My other pair is still feeding but I have no idea how many chicks or age.

Third pair due to hatch any day know
The females are very steady on the nest and only leave if I pick them up
