Author's notes

Initially the morning of 17 dec both the male and female Gang-gang Cockatoo were outside the hollow I have seen them at before. The female was high in the tree calling while the male was lower and silent. After a few minutes, when I was watching them, the male went into the hollow while the female remained outside calling. The female only moved down slightly when a Red Wattlebird landed on the tree but there was no interaction between the different birds. She just kept calling. I moved further down the path in case I was showing too much attention to the hollow, when I was further away I looked back to see the male emerge. Both the male and female then flew off to the north-west.
