When we lived in Carwoola a pair bred in one of two eucalypts (about 100 m apart ) near our house for 10 years. They were not unduly disturbed by a bushfire that came through the property. Over the years I found them roosting in 27 different trees within about 200 m of the nest trees. Once the chicks fledged the family would travel around together for about 2 months (November December) then I would lose track of them for January and the parents would return in February but not be found every day. From April onwards I would usually find them - sometimes needing 30 minutes of searching if they had shifted from one end of the territory to the other- every day.
The behaviour changed somewhat after about 7 years which made me wonder if one of the pair had been replaced. For reasons I cannot now recall I felt the male had continued, with a new female.
I have a few articles I compiled for Canberra Bird Notes if you are interested .
