Baby Budgies in the hollows

The creek and river beds around Central Australia are full of the begging sounds of Budgerigar chicks in the hollows of the River Red Gums. With plentiful food from the recent rains in easy reach for the parents, the sounds of new life can be deafening. The cacophony from the growing chicks drowns out even the Yellow-throated Miners, and that's no mean feat. Only when the alarm calls from the White-plumed Honeyeaters of an approaching threat causes a lull in the chirps from inside the trees.

The following is a series of photos I captured earlier this week. I got a nice surprise when I downloaded the photos and saw what was in the hollow in the second photo. Hope you enjoy.
