Author's notes

While on the north side of Red Hill I came upon a eucalyptus tree with a long hollow in it. I saw a pair of Eastern Rosellas apparently comfortable at the hollow. I thought they had staked out their claim to the hollow. Then a Crimson Rosella arrived on the scene, who was chased off shortly afterwards by Gang-gangs.
