Author's notes

This cockatoo spent about a week checking out this nesting hollow fending off attacking bees, and alternatively looking at the adjoining hollow, but always coming back to this one. I initially thought that the bees had a hive in this hollow but now think they were just also checking out a potential new hive ( a separate sighting shows an over-populated hive that is just above this hollow).
