The need to care for your offspring is certainly instinctive.
Yesterday we received some egg-citing news from our project partners at Mt Rothwell. Our Bush Stone-curlew parents-to-be are still hard at work, patiently and lovingly nurturing their precious eggs around the clock.
In this heart-warming video, both the male and female are captured on camera taking turns nesting on their eggs. Click here to view.
It's not long to go now, with the two eggs egg-specting to hatch within the next week.
