I thought a picture of the nesting Dollarbirds in Corroboree Park was posted recently, but can't find it. The Dollarbirds have been nesting for at least two weeks and I went to check them out again today. The neighbours are a bit sad, not Noisy but Common. The left nest was in the adjacent tree to the Dollarbirds, and the other one is 20-30m away. Maybe CIMAG should do some more selling in the area, or is it one of the control areas in current Myna studies?

Incidentally a SC Cockatoo was trimming a strip of bark from in front of a hollow on the recently lopped tree there. Hopefully the tree will be hosting nests again sooner than some of us thought. Maybe it was the hollow previously used by the Gang-gangs.
