Author's notes

Female looking into and chewing a double entrance hollow in red gum, with male on branch above (photo 2), then mutual grooming (photos 3 and 4). Another pair arrived on branches in the same tree while the female was at the hollow, male briefly flew down to join them, lots of calling, then second pair flew off to nearby trees, leaving this pair grooming each other.
