G'day from Bowen,
I've recorded details of a number of TF nests in the Bowen region and on 
numerous visits I have observed both birds at the nest or close by to 
its mate on the nest. We currently have a pair nesting at the corner of 
Reynolds St and Brisbane St, it is well exposed and situated in an 
African Tulip Tree approx 2m from the ground. As you drive by the birds 
sit out like a sore thumb well exposed to all of the elements. 
Hopefully they will survive the nesting period without any interference. 
Another nest at Delta currently in use has been in existence for the 
last four years, birds returning to the tree  each year, much to the 
pleasure of Brian and June Phillips who keep notes on the activity of 
the birds.
