6.30am I opened the Family room curtains today and this was my early morning greeting.

These two are regular visitors to our garden. They call in most days in search of seed that I may or may not put out for them and their other parrot friends. After seeing this my question is - how long need I wait for these two to introduce their newly fledged offspring? That is supposing they find a suitable nesting hollow and are successful at rearing their chicks.
The closest nesting hollows that I know of are up on Red Hill.
