A few days ago I finally got around to finishing and erecting 6 new parrot nest boxes – 3 in our garden and 3 on the golf course. I think I was just in time.
The three boxes in the garden have been checked by Eastern Rosellas already. I was hoping some Crimson Rosellas might have got a look in, as their numbers seemed to have declined since we moved here.
I was chain sawing some firewood to see us through to the last of winter, hopefully, and when I glanced up I caught this eastern checking out the nearest box.
I’m sorry for the quality of the images. I just grabbed the camera and fired from some distance. As the birds settle down and grow more accustomed to me being near, I hope to get some better shots.
