In the book Campbell noted, 'Nest - Open, shallow; somewhat loosely constructed of twigs; lined inside with leaves (Eucalyptus) and placed in a scrubby bush or tree, at a height varying from about ten to thirty feet from the ground. Dimensions over all, diameter 7 or 8 inches by 5 inches in depth.'
