Greetings All

Yesterday Fay and I were surveying the edge of open woodland adjoining Tarong 
Power Station property [South Burnett region, Queensland].  Noted a pair of 
Galahs in the fork of a nearby gum.  One bird appeared to be excavating, or at 
least clearing out, a small hollow about a metre up along the left-hand branch 
of the fork while the other Galah, at the fork junction itself, appeared to be 
rubbing its cheeks against the right-hand branch.  It repeated this several 

Never having previously observed this behaviour in Galahs was wondering if 
anyone could offer an explanation.
