Hi Rob, a small amount of red on the head indicates this is a young male.
Could you please change the gender to male.
Thanks, natureguy.

Hi Natureguy. I put female because the female was the one with her head in the hole in the second photo. Perhaps I should have put "mixed" Rob PS I have a photo of the male on a branch and the female with her head in the hole (in the same tree)

Hi Rob, can you tell me if you thought the male in the first photo was an adult bird and the partner to the second bird or was the male a young of this year. Chris

Many thanks, just what I thought but one could infer from the image that the male was a young of the year. Not being able to see the tail does not help. It would be most unusual because to my knowledge young do not appear until later on in the year. Chris

Rob, it would be great if you could continue to keep an eye on this site. I have a site in Telopia Park which I am keeping an eye on. Chris

Hi Chris would that be the same site as my 12 September Gang Gang post. Do you know about the people feeding birds at 3 Tench St. Gang Gangs show up there in numbers. I'm thinking of making their acquaintance. They will be amongst the first to see young birds turn up. Rob

Yes, looks very close. My two observations were at -35.3133 149.1389. Both submitted to CNM but without images. I am not aware of 3 Tench St so well worth following up. Chris
