I have a pair of Coppersmith Barbets on a rotting tree in my garden. They started drilling in November 2018 and are this week possibly roosting.

This video was taken late January 2019.

The following image is this week. They literally poke their head out and just sit there blinking for +30mins and then either go back in or fly out and possibly change shifts with their mate.

Perhaps you have some Tonk Tonk Tonk Tonk Tonk Tonk .... non stop!!! bird calls near you ?

That is fantastic, Ally.

Meanwhile, I'm sorting through SD cards, looking to re-commission my drone and I found this shot of "Lorrie"... a Rainbow Lorikeet that I hand-reared after he was accidentally cut out of a nest tree. We had him in an aviary for a while, then he was free around the yard, where he raised many babies of his own

Found in the newly planted rice fields a couple of days ago.
White one is an Egret but what is its hunting companion with the impressive beak?
