Author's notes

Female sitting in hollow looking out at 8.30pm, sorry about photo quality as it was quite dark and I did not want to go close. Male in nearby tree apparently attempting to chase away cockatoos. Norm P reports that he saw the male enter this hollow yesterday afternoon and earlier in the week saw him attempting to drive cockatoos from this tree. See previous sightings of this pair.
