We have a huge E. melliodora in our garden. Rosellas and others regularly look at the bark scars to see if they are suitable for nesting (they aren't). So we thought a couple of nesting boxes nailed to the tree might be a good idea.

Where is the best place to obtain suitable boxes?  Preferably soon while the nesting frenzy is still on them.  I can assemble, but larger scale carpentry is not practicable.

Candidate local (Deakin) species are Crimson and Eastern Rosellas, possibly Lorikeets, Gang-gangs, Galahs, Red-rumps. Maybe Satin Bowerbirds, if they like that sort of thing. It's probably mainly the Rosellas that might be interested.
