This morning at Newline I observed a male brown treecreeper entering and leaving a hollow tree trunk.  I watched him for more than an hour, and he always remained within 30 metres of the “nest”, feeding only on the ground.  He entered and left the nest several times in this period.  He was not carrying nesting material, nor was the female seen.  Can one assume the female is sitting on eggs in the nest?
