Hi all  an interesting observation I have made this week was of a pair of
rainbows using a radiata pine as a nest. The hollow is in a mature tree
showing servere decay  through the centre of the tree  I have previously
seen  sacred kingfishers using a hollow in a weeping willow , although a
nuisance species , the soft wood nature had allowed a hollow to develop much
quicker than in say a eucaliptus . Has anyone else seen unusual host trees
being used as nests? cheers Ian
