Author's notes

I've clicked 'nesting site' for protection, but probably not a nest. A male repeatedly bobbing his head into the hollow, and chased off a second male. Maybe a water tree, or just some general Gang-gang aggression on display. Roughly 4 birds, probably all non-nesting. Male has some distinctive features on his beak for future IDs.
