Spotted these two at my parents garden on Easter Sunday. The kids were running wild on their easter egg hunt but these two never stirred. They are at head height in a Chilean pine that is 7 to 8m high. We call it 'the puzzle the monkey tree' ever since a very elderly neighbour (in his 90's and used to get his words mixed up a bit) called it that one day when he called over waaaay back in the 80's sometime.
