CommentIt's that time of year when many of our native birds are looking for hollows to nest. We have a pair of beautiful Elegant Parrots that have been showing a bit of intermittent interest in the hollow of an old tree on the roadside near our house. Yesterday I snapped this image of the female (I assume) checking out the potential new nursery while her mate perched nearby.
