Walking along main trail, I heard loud calls of sp, then saw 2 flying into Brush Box as I went off trail 20m, but flew to tall Spotted Gum before I got got photos. Poor photos in latter tree as they foraged for few mins in foliage, then called again and flew. Looked adult (at least one). Suspect 3rd bird present (calls hd) but never seen.
