Author's notes

A group of gang gangs arrives here each evening. On this occasion, I observed one bird entering a hollow, while seven birds, including a juvenile male (third photo), flew into the same tree, then on to this dead tree. A few minutes later, another pair then flew into a nearby blue gum, then shortly afterwards a different pair flew into another blue gum, making 12 birds in total. Much loud calling between them.
