This year we have seen a pair of galahs and a pair of rosellas hanging around the same hole in the tree. One afternoon last week Don called to me to get the camera as it looked as if the galahs were nesting again. Sure enough there was one galah sitting on an adjacent branch and another trying out the nest. She would disappear into the nest for 5 or so minutes, then reappear, ruffle her feathers, preen a little then go back into the nest.
This is all very intriguing - the battle of the nests? Or maybe the old tree has multiple nesting spots with one shared entrance - like an apartment block for birds.
I will keep you posted if there are any further episodes in the fascinating soapie.
