Author's notes

A male Australian King-parrot was sitting quietly on a tree branch. Even when a group of noisy Crimson Rosellas flew to the tree, with at least one appearing to swoop him, he stayed quiet, moving to another branch. At one stage he flew to the trunk of the tree but around the other side of the tree so I could not see if there was a hollow. He stayed on the trunk before he flew back to the branch.
