Author's notes

There were three Sulphur-crested Cockatoos in this eucalyptus tree, primarily focussed on a tree hollow where a branch had been. It appeared the hollow was not that deep as only half a cockatoo ever went in the hollow. Two birds were in the hollow with their heads buried in there, possibly eating at the wood or grubs. The third bird was on a branch by itself. They were finally chased off by a male Gang-gang.
