  1. Fantastic! Its a great photo as is but I want to know if that log is sitting flat or standing up and if it is a log out in the bush or set up specially for a nest hole?

  2. Hi Mick!
    It's a mighty living eucalypt in the bush, which muskies and rosellas find extremely attractive for nesting. Photo was taken several weeks ago. I was surprised to see them doing house maintenance as autumn was already here.
    This hollow was at about 3,5 - 4 m above ground and the muskies were quite curious about my activity, so they cooperated! Plus I was wearing a good camouflage cap :D
