Some years ago I visited Lake Mungo and was intrigued by the apostle birds with their family groups, that were often around us as we drew in the landscape.  I was impressed when I read about their behaviour and the way that up to 10 birds in the group worked together to build nests and look after the nestlings. I was also intrigued by the fact that more that one female could lay an egg in the same nest!
