Author's notes

A Sulphur-crested Cockatoo nestling was peering out quietly. It moved its head slightly but beyond that was perfectly still. There was a quiet, adult bird in the same tree that I assumed was one of its parents. I also saw another adult bird chewing at bark on a nearby tree, which may have been the other parent. The hollow with the nestling was the same hollow I photographed at https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sighting/3877857.
