Thanks I think this may be a new gang gang nesting tree - great to have such good photographic evidence

Author's notes

The last photograph shows the male Gang-gang Cockatoo that chased off the Sulphur-crested Cockatoos. I initially thought he was alone. I was making some notes about what I had seen when I looked up only to see him disappear into the tree hollow featured in the remaining photographs. He went in quietly, so I did not even realise he was moving. He had completely disappeared by the time I had my camera ready. I kept looking at the hole, convinced he would be out shortly. I was therefore, surprised and delighted, when a female came out instead. She popped her head out first, before emerging completely to fly off to the north-west.
