Surprising Greenhoods

I recently found a small colony of Maroonhoods growing in the notch of a tree trunk. Bit of a first for me. There were a few individuals on the ground beside a track in the Bunyip State Park. But then I noticed 4 or 5 individuals growing in the tree!

A friend invited me to explore a private bush block at Nilma North. Some nice birds and shrubs, but the highlight was to find four species of Greenhoods in close proximity - Nodding, Maroonhood, Tall and Blunt.

I got the above three shots, plus a few others, within 2 or 3 square metres.
