Upcoming breeding season
In the last of the bright days in June, crimson rosellas, laughing kookaburras and Australian wood ducks all seem to be preparing for breeding season.
All three species of bird are searching for suitable breeding hollows.
Australian wood ducks
Australian wood ducks begin looking for suitable sites in July. They can be seen in a number of older stags in the Reserve, calling softly to each other.
The breeding season of crimson rosellas begins in September and laughing kookaburras begin breeding in spring. They seem to be eyeing off suitable sites, as the rosella can be seen doing here.
Several groups of kookaburras on the ridge above the reservoir appear to be staking territory with group choruses and checking out suitable hollows.
