- The weebill's nest, a dome with a side entrance, is rather large for such a small bird.
- Our closest park, Arapiles has over 111 bird species recorded, weebills, thornbills, honeyeaters, lorikeets, parrots, tree creepers, red-rumped parrots, robins, superb blue wrens, and babblers amongst many others.
