Seen on the northeast slopes Mt Rogers this afternoon.Three kookaburras settled on a branch of a eucalypt and one, with a skink in its beak, flew to the opening of a hollow about 3m above the ground in another tree about 10m distant from the first. On later examination by binoculars, the hollow had been widened by chewing to allow entry and exit. There were no sounds from the hollow or any of the other birds during the whole process.
