Adjacent to the tree with seedlings at 4855582, but just finishing flowering. No seedlings beneath, but thicker mulch. I am not sure whether it is the same species of not, given the difference in flowering time, but it certainly looks similar in other respects.

One bird spent a very long time on top of this dead tree fern, mostly head down and tail in the air. I wondered whether there may be a nest up there. A ridiculously brief video of the behaviour (after the even wobblier bits were discarded) is here.
