Abstract

The Trustees of the Australian Museum have lately received the eggs of Plotus novae-hollandiae, taken by Mr. J. L. Ayres at Lake Buloke, in the Wimmera District of Victoria, on 1st April, 1891. The nest was built at a height of about fifteen feet, on the branch of a Eucalyptus standing in the water, it was outwardly composed of sticks lined inside with twigs, and contained five eggs, one of which was unfortunately broken in descending the tree.
