Thanks Ruth - did the Galah's nest in this hollow? Have you seen the gang gangs looking into or entering this hollow previously?
Cheers Michael

Not that we are aware of but previously kurrajongs and sulphur crested cockatoos have nested in this tree. Yesterday evening the adults were feeding their offspring. Gang-gangs are commonly sited in this area. Branches break off this tree and birds nest in the remaining stumps etc.
