from time to time, but he's in a different tree today.

The old tree, which could be 300 years of age, houses'a swarm of
bees, several birds nest in the many cavities and a pair of ducks
nest high in the tree each spring. There's often a koala
amongst the many branches, and I've seen ring-tailed possums
sunning themselves on a bare branch.
