Are they part of the new PhD study on Common Mynas?

Does anyone on the list know anything about the nesting boxes that have been put up at the Pinnacle reserve in Hawker? Judging by the size of the entrance hole and cavity (they're all identical), they seem to be aimed at rosellas and the like. I've come across 6 so far, but the circled numbers on bottoms of the boxes suggest that there are at least 11 of them. Part of the Stanhope government's response to the shortage of affordable (avian) housing perhaps?
