Author's notes

There were two Crimson Rosellas inspecting hollows in a dead tree; a tree which also had Australian Wood Ducks. The rosellas were looking at different hollows. One hollow was on a branch while the other was in the main trunk of the tree. The ducks did not appear to mind, with both species avoiding the other. The photographs show the different hollows.
