Author's notes

I first saw one lorikeet in the shadows on a branch of a eucalyptus. Fortunately for me the bird came out into the light so I could obtain a better shot. The bird seemed to be interested in where a branch had broken off. The damage to the tree did not look that deep so it was unlikely to be a nesting hollow. I then realised there was a second lorikeet in the tree. Further up there may have been a nesting hollow as both birds seemed to be at the entrance to a possible hole in the tree.
