Author's notes

Group of six checking hollows in a tree used for nesting in 2018-19 season but apparently not since then. Male of pair in photo 1 may have a missing left eye? Cockatoos nest in this tree. Sorry about photos, it was after 8pm and they were high in tree. They all flew off towards blue gums shortly after.
