Author's notes

Male and female found today. Female just sitting on a branch. However the male was very busy chewing bark at the back of the limb of the original hollow. Just disgarding the bark as he picked it off. Not sure if he is making a new hollow?

Thanks Denise they do seem to place chewed bark at the bottom of nesting hollows.
