User's notes

While watching a female Gang gang feeding a short distance from the known hollow, I heard a loud call from the direction of the hollow. The female immediately flew off. I didn't see her land, but shortly after, 'Baldy' emerged from the hollow. He flew straight up into nearby treetops and started attacking another pair, with lots of noise and falling feathers. The other three photos are stills from a video of this process showing him on the right in the first and left in the second. After a few minutes the other pair flew off and he returned to the hollow.
