Some months ago I downloaded a plan from the Internet how to build a Rosella nest box. I built it and hung it about four metres high in a wattle (Acacia leiocalyx). We saw Rosellas visiting it and then entering it and yesterday at 8.30am two fledglings made their 1st flight. How happy are we? Tips for anyone doing it: don't forget the woodshavings in the bottom. Don't forget the wire mesh on the inside of the side with the hole so the birds can climb out. We now have a pair of Bush Thick Knees nesting in the garden. It will be fun to see the young runners. On a serious note we have lots of Eastern Grey Kangaroos on our land. One female has a blind Joey in the pouch. On its few excursions around the garden it is absolutely terrorised. It constantly raises its head and calls and runs into things. I don't know what can be a good future for this creature but would like advice from those who have had a similar experience.
