Author's notes

Crimson rosella was on top of hollow when male Gang-gang arrived. Rosella flew to nearby branch (photo 1). Male Gang-gang looked into hollow, then flew to nearby tree. Rosella returned to hollow (photo 2). Female Gang-gang flew to hollow, rosella flew off, female looked into hollow (photos 3 and 4), then pair flew off as I came closer.
