Author's notes

I followed the noise of these dollar birds, and then suddenly I was being swooped by them! Then I heard the calling of young, and discovered this fledgling, which I think was newly fledged from a hollow in the tree, as it was very unsteady. This is the same area I saw a male feed a female early in November, so I am assuming they nested in this tree.
