Author's notes

These are possibly the adult birds of the nestlings reported at https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sighting/4184438. The two adults were in a tree near the tree where the hollow is. The male started chewing on bark around a hollow before putting half his body in. The male was occasionally calling but no birds appeared to answer back. The female remained silent. Both birds flew off but circled back around towards the tree with the hollow but did not go that far. I did not see any sign of young birds.
