Nesting Disasters


Some pushy galahs kick Scruffy the brush-tailed phascogale out of his tree hollow home. Fortunately, Farmer Fred builds him a new nest box, but it soon gets destroyed. Scruffy meets Milly (another phascogale) and they live out their lives together in her hollow.

Community nest box building activities are encouraged to support these endangered animals.
