Hollow Nests

Sculpture by Forest Keegel.

Not enough old trees and fallen logs with habitat hollows to nest in. So much paper shredded in offices, newspapers left on seats at stations. What if birds and possums used it to build nests?

Local newspapers, letters pages, election leaflets, petitions, complaints and other printed paper matter is shredded and sculpted into nest hollows for arboreal mammals.  Tuans (Brush Tailed Phascogale), possums, kookaburras, parrots, lorikeets, kingfishers, owls and microbats are some of the species that use tree hollows for nesting.

Bound with wire, string and beeswax, and hung under the eaves in various locations around the town centre of Castlemaine.
