Author's notes

These are the same nestlings JackF reported at https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sighting/4184132 I saw a male high up in another tree, he chase away two galahs in an adjacent tree. I could see a little bump where the hollow entrance was, it was a nestling looking out. He eventually came a fair way out with his shoulders showing. A little while later another bump showed, which developed into a second head. They both had a good look around, with the second one always remaining lower. The first one preened its feathers and when it was by itself, a little later on, it seemed to stretch its wings. The second one came out again, but only as far as its head. Both of them disappeared back into the hollow after a little while as if being called to come back in.
