Author's notes

We then saw two Australian King-parrots, a male and a female, sitting quietly on a branch. They were not too close together and not making a noise, although they did appear to be looking around. After a moment the female flew to a tree hollow, which we all thought must be their nest. To our surprise, and possibly theirs, a Crimson Rosella emerged from the hollow. We postulated these two King-parrots were actually looking for a hollow, but were beaten to this one by the rosellas.
