User's notes

Single female (no male in vicinity) chewing bark and entering hollow in E Manifera Maculosa. Visits occasionally. Most active on his visit. Stayed 10 minutes. Not able to disappear into hollow, so suspect hollow not deep enough for breeding.

Female sighted at hollow on 5/12 @ 7am. Did not enter hollow or chew bark. Instead made a number of sideways head nodding actions, then departed. No male sighted
