User's notes

These king parrots were investigating a site where a large branch had recently broken off. It had previously been regularly visited by gang-gangs and was thought to be a nesting site - see Sighting 4539510. Just to the left of the female king parrot is one of the entrance holes that the gang-gangs were seen at @MichaelMulvaney, @ChrisDavey.
