A house building male Sprawk.....?

Whilst engaging in my (almost) daily walk outback through the glutinous mud, I came across this ''confiding'' male Sprawk, thinking at first that it was attempting to dry off in the canopy flying often from branch to branch, I proceeded to take some shots. To my amazement! I realised that it was attempting to break off twigs (presumably for nest construction somewhere?)
Clearly this task takes place every year, but one always assumed that it would be a more discrete operation well away from prying homosapien?
Thought the last ''pantaloon'' shot was telling...regarding leg length.
